To our beloved President, 


ivho, by his precept and example, has taught us to love 

truth, to seek wisdom, and to serve our fello%men, 

this volume is affectionately dedicated 

The Junior Annual 'Board of 1900. 



N submitting to the public the first annual issued by any class in Colorado 
College, a few introductory words seem fitting. The purpose of the class of 
1901 in publishing this book is to give an impulse to the life of the College which 
shall inspire every future class to follow our example. We have chosen as a 
name, which we hope the successive volumes will each bear, one which was, in 
our judgment, the best of many suggested by the student body; one appro- 
priate to this region and to the locality, at the same time symbolic of the tiger 
colors, and expressive of the spirit which is characteristic of the College. We 
have tried to make this publication what a college annual should be — a record 
of the college life, representative of the students and containing a fair propor- 
tion of fun and fancy, yet not unmindful of the best literary standards. 

So we respectfully submit to the students, the alumni, and the other 
friends of Colorado College, Volume I of The Pike's Peak Nugget. You may 
test it in the crucible of criticism, you may horde it awav like a miser, or you 
may make it an ornament for your table and exhibit it freely to your friends. 
Our labor will be repaid if you find it true gold.

HEN the City of Colorado Springs was laid out by the Colorado Springs 
AJJ Town Company, a plot of ground containing about fifty-six acres, then far 
to the north of the center of the city, but now surrounded by its best residences, 
was reserved for a college. In 1874 Colorado College was organized and the 
property passed into its hands. In the same year it was opened for students 
under the executive direction of Rev. Jonathan Edwards. He remained with 
it for only one year, and was succeeded by Rev. J. G. Dougherty, who was 
the first to receive the title of President. He in turn was succeeded, after one 
year, by Rev. E. P. Penney, who occupied the office of President for nine years. 
During his term the first permanent building was constructed and named 
Palmer Hall in honor of Gen. W. J. Palmer, the President of the Colorado 
Springs Company, who has always been one of the most generous friends of 
the institution. In 1885 the office of president again became vacant and was 
not filled for three years. This was the darkest period in the history of the 
institution. Had it not been for the steadfastness and energy of a few persons 
who had the prophet's vision, the college would now be dead and forgotten. A 
vigorous campaign was begun in New England under the leadership of Prof. 
G. N. Marden ; the money necessary to pay the debts of the institution was 
secured ; and in 1888 Re,v. William F. Slocum, then of Baltimore, was called 
to the presidency. 

Since that time the progress of the college has been steady, and for 
the last few years, rapid. In 1888 the stone building now occupied as the 
President's residence was purchased. Hagerman Hall, for young men, was 
completed in 1889; Montgomery Hall, for young women, in 1891 ; the gym- 


nasium, in 1891 ; the Coburn Library, the gift of the late N. P. Coburn, of 
Newton, Mass., and the Wolcott Observatory, in 1894 ; Ticknor Hall, for young 
women, in 1897, and the Perkins Fine Arts Building during the present college 
year. In the purchase, or the building, of these and one or two other smaller 
structures, about $160,000 has been expended. In addition, about $400,000 has 
been added to the endowment funds. About $65,000 more is now in hand 
with which a Science and Administration Building is to be begun as soon as 
the architect's plans can be prepared. 

This material growth has been paralleled by the internal development. 
In 1888, when President Slocum came, there were seven instructors, now there 
are thirty-five. Then there were twenty-five students in the college and the 
academy, and not one regular college student. Before the present year closes 
there will have been enrolled in all departments nearly five hundred. There 
will be granted this year thirty diplomas as against five in 1894 and eighteen 
last year. The class which is just completing its Freshman year numbers 
about sixty. 

But the growth in numbers has not been more marked than the growth 
in college spirit. Five or six years ago there was a college here only in the 
sense that professors heard the recitations of students in college work. But 
all is now changed. Every class is organized, and class spirit and rivalrv 
are a healthful influence. The college has taken a prominent place in inter- 
collegiate athletics during the last year, having won the State Championship 
in base-ball and foot-ball. Last spring it defeated the University of Nebraska 
in an intercollegiate debate. It has one of the finest glee-clubs in the West. 
There could not be found a college where the students are more loyal to their 
institution than are the students of Colorado College. 

The college stands above all for the pre-eminence of the religious spirit. 
It seeks to see the meaning of life through the eyes of Christ, to judge all 
things by his standards, to infuse into all human relations his spirit. In the 
first circular issued by the institution were these words : "The character which 
is most desired for this college is that of thorough scholarship and fervent 
piety, each assisting the other, and neither ever offered as a compensation for 
the defects of the other." From the beginning, this has been the ambition 
of those who have directed its affairs, and it has always sought to accomplish 
this result without appealing to sectarianism. Members of the leading 
denominations are among its trustees and faculty. Hardly a denomination is 
unrepresented in its student body. 

Every one of the past twelve years of the history of the college has 
been a marked advance upon its predecessor. The year which is just closing 
has been in all respects the best. Never before has it had such a sentiment of 
loyalty behind it in the city and in the State. Never before have so many 


friends been ready to come to its help. It is easy to prophecy that in the 
next twelve years still greater progress will be made and the institution will 
become one of the large colleges of the country. May it never lose the standards, 
the aspirations, the spirit, which have given it such an individuality in these 
early years of its history !

Head Professor of Modern Languages and Literature. 

Louis A. E. Alders was born in the northern part of Ger- 
many, where he lived until seventeen years of age. He then came 
to the United States and studied mechanical engineering long 
enough to find out that this subject did not interest him sufficiently 
to he made his profession. For four years lie led an interesting 
and adventurous life at sea, visiting the southern continents. On 
his return to America he entered Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass.. 
to prepare for his university course ; this he took at Harvard 
(1890-93), but left at the end of his junior year to spend twelve 
months in study at the University of Berlin. Again returning to 
America, he received the B. A. degree from Harvard University 
and took a postgraduate course there during 1894-95. Since Sep- 
tember, 1895, he has been Professor of Modern Languages and 
Literature at Colorado College. As President of the College 
Athletic Association for the past three years he has been most 
influential, directly and indirectly, in bringing about the athletic victories. Each 
year Prof. Aiders gives University Extension lectures on German, French and 
English literatures in Colorado Springs, Denver and Pueblo. 

Professor of Physics. 
Samuel Jackson Barnett was born in Kansas in 1873. In 1894 
he took his A. B. degree from the University of Denver and 
became instructor in physics and biology in the same institution. 
The following year he studied at the University of Virginia. Here 
he was assistant in the astronomical observatory and instructor 
in astronomy. During 1896-1898 Mr. Barnett was Graduate Scholar, 
Fellow and Fellow-elect in Physics at Cornell, where he took 
his Ph. D. degree. Dr. Barnett has written a number of papers 
on electricity, which have been published in the Physical Review, 
Electrician, Electrical Review, and Electrical World and Engineer. 
For the past two years he has taught physics in Colorado College. 



Professor of Biology. 

Prof. Brookover was born in southern Ohio, March n, 1870. 
During the first eleven years of his life he was, to quote his own 
words, "a pumpkin" — that is, raised between the corn rows. 
He went through the common schools of Manchester, ( )hio, and 
graduated from the High School of the same place in 1888. After 
his graduation he experimented in Pedagogy for one winter, 
after which he took a course in the National Normal University, 
Lebadon, Ohio, taking the degree of A. B. in 1890. He held 
various positions after that, being teacher of Science in 1890-1891 
at Fountain College, Tennessee; Principal of Milton Academy, 
Tennessee, from 1891 to 1893, and instructor in Science in 
Southern Kansas Academy in 1894-1895. From 1895 to 1896 
he was a scholar in Biology at the Ohio State University and 
instructor in Biology at the same place until the fall of 1898. 
The Master's degree was conferred upon him in 1897 by the ( )hio University, 
and in the fall of 1898 he became instructor in Biology, Botany and Zoology 
in Colorado College. 


Head Professor of Mathematics. 

Florian Cajori was born at St. Aignon, in the Canton of 
Goanbunden, Switzerland, in 1859. In 1875 he came to the LInited 
States, during 1876- 1877 ne attended the State Normal School 
in Whitewater, Wisconsin, and in 1878- 1879 he taught school in 
Wisconsin. In 1883 he graduated from the Wisconsin Univer- 
sity with the degree of B. S. After graduation, Mr. Cajori spent 
six months in Switzerland, and in 1884 he entered the John 
Hopkins FIniversity as a graduate student. In 1885 he accepted 
the position of Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Tulane 
University, and in 1887 he was made Professor of Applied Math- 
ematics. In 1888 ill health compelled him to resign his position 
in the South and come to Colorado. During 1888- 1889 he served 
on the United States Bureau of Education, and since then has taught in Colo- 
rado College. Prof. Cajori has published several books on Mathematics and 



Associate Professor of the Classical Languages and Literatures 
and Principal of Cutler Academy. 

Nathan Brown Coy was born in Ithaca, New York, in 1847. 
He prepared for college at Williston Seminary, East Hampton, 
Mass., and, in 1870, took his A. B. degree at Yale. After gradu- 
ation, Mr. Coy taught first in New Jersey and then in Connecticut, 
and in 1875 became the head of the Latin Department at Phillips 
Academy, Andover ; but the next year he came to Colorado on 
account of poor health. For five years he taught classics in 
the East Denver High School, and in 1891 began his duties as 
State Superintendent of Public Instruction. At the same time, 
he was President of the State Teachers' Association and superin- 
tended with great success the Colorado Educational Exhibit at 
the World's Fair. For the last three years Mr. Coy has been 
connected with Colorado College. 

Professor of Geology, Mineralogy and Paleontology. 

Greenfield, New Hampshire, is the birth-place of Prof. 
Ciagin, September 4th, 1858, being the date of his birth. In 
1862 his parents removed to Wisconsin, and later, in his eleventh 
year, to Crawford County, Kansas. He prepared for college at 
Washburn from 1872 to 1875, and then studied four years at 
the Polytechnic Institute, of Brooklyn, after which he specialized 
in Natural History at Harvard in 1 880-1 881. The summer of 
1 88 1 he spent in the private biological laboratory of Agassiz, the 
only student in a group of several professors. In 1882 he received 
the degree of B. S. (Magna Cum Laudc) at the Harvard Scien- 
tific School, and after that spent a summer in the Sausen Col- 
lege of Languages, at Amherst. He was called to the Chair of 
Natural History in Washburn in 1882, and filled that position 
until 1891, when he came to Colorado College. 

Since coming to Colorado College Prof. Cragin has filled the position 
of Assistant State Geologist, of Texas, and has taken the degree of Ph. D. at 
John Hopkins University; the former during a leave of absence from 1892 to 
1894, and the latter in 1898- 1899. While at Washburn he originated and prose- 
cuted a biological survey of the State of Kansas, the first survey of its kind in 
the country. For six years — 1890- 1897 — he was one of the editors and pub- 
lishers of the American Geologist. 



Head Professor of Classical Languages and Literature.

next two years abroad in study and travel ami, on his return, 
resumed his former duties at Andover. Between 1892 and 1894 
Mr. Gile held the Associate Professorship of Greek at the 
Chicago University on leave of absence in Colorado. Since that 
time he has been connected with Colorado College.

educated at the College of the City of New York, and at the same 
ime studied music under Mr. Alfred Von Livonius. He spent 
two years at Vienna in studying the pianofort with Anton Door, 
and theory and composition with the Fuchs brothers. < >n his re- 
turn to America Mr. Goldmark studied the pianofort with Joseffy 
•and composition with Dvorak. In 1894, on account of ill health, 
he came to Colorado Springs and is at present Director of the 
Colorado College Conservatory of Music. During the past 
winter Mr. Goldmark's overture to "Hiawatha" was played by 
the Boston Symphony Orchestra at all its concerts.

Ellsworth Gage Lancaster was born in Dixfield, Maine. 
Until he entered Amherst College he attended the Augusta City 
schools. In 1885 he received his Bachelor's degree; in 1888, his 
Master's degree from Amherst, and in 1889, after studying a 
year at Andover, he was made B. D. During the next two years 
Dr. Lancaster was Pastor of the Congregational Church at 
Ashby, Massachusetts. In 1890, having taught various branches 
of study previously at Williston Seminary, East Hampton, 
Massachusetts, and at Morgan Park, Illinois, he accepted the 
position of Principal of the Southern Kansas Academy, Eureka, 
Kansas. He taught there for five years, then spent two years in 
Clark University, first as University Scholar, then as University 


Fellow in Psychology, and obtained the degree of Ph. D. in 1897. In September 
of the same year he came to Colorado College, whei 
the Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Pedagogy. 

of the same year he came to Colorado College, where he has been ever since, 


Dean of Women 

Miss Ruth Loomis was born in North Manchester, Con- 
necticut, and spent the years of her school life in Poughkeepsie, 
New York, where she took the preparatory course for Vassar 
College. In 1885 she received an A. B. degree from that col- 
lege and two years after was made instructor in English in the 
same institution; this position she held for nine years. In 1891 
Miss Loomis spent four months in France, taking lectures at 
both the Sorhaune, in Paris, and L'Ecole Normale Superieure, 
at Sevres, with the view of studying the methods of the French 
in teaching composition. She came to Colorado College in il 
and since 1897 has been Dean of Women in this institution. 

Treasurer of the College. 

George N. Marden was born in Concord, New Hampshire, 
March 18, 1836. He studied at first under Dr. Cyrus Richards, 
at Meridan, New Hampshire, afterwards teaching for several 
years. For three years he studied Theology at Bangor, and in 
1862 was ordained as a Congregational minister, taking as his 
first charge the church at Boxboro, Mass. For seven months 
he was agent in Virginia for the United States Christian Com- 
mission, and immediately after that went to Washington, D. C, 
where he labored in the cause of the freedmen. Later he was 
for five years pastor of the Old South Church, at Fannington, 
Maine. After he had resigned this position he traveled for a 
year in Europe, returning to America in 1876, and accepting the 
Pastorate of the Union Church, in South Weymouth. In 1881 
he came to Colorado Springs, and became Professor of Political Economy 
and History. 

Prof. Marden's life, in connection with Colorado College, has been a 
heroic one. A staunch and loyal friend of the college through all those years 
of adversity, he has been with it in despair as well as in prosperity. In 1884 
he undertook to raise funds for the delinquent college, and by his own efforts 
has brought into the treasury since then over $200,000. In the words of Presi- 
dent Thwing, "He has brought forth life under the very ribs of death."

Newark, New Jersey, and he received his A. B. degree from the 
University of New York in 1875. He then took the regular 
course in the School of Mines of Columbia University and, in 
1878, received the degree of E. M. from that institution. After 
taking his Master's degree from the University of New York, 
Prof. Striebv was induced to give up his intentions of engaging 
in iron manufacture that he might come west to start the Santa 
Fe Academy under the direction of Colorado College. He was 
principal of this school for two years. In 1880 he was called 
to Colorado College to organize the Department of Chemistry and Metallu 
and has ever since been at the head of that department. 


Professor of Political and Social Science. 

Francis Walker was born in Washington, D. C, in 1870. 
His youth was spent in New Haven and Boston. In 1892 he 
received the degree of S. 1!. from the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology. The three years following were spent in post- 
graduate work in Columbia University, where he took his 
Master's degree in 1893 and his Doctor's degree in 1895. His 
Doctor's Thesis, on "Double Taxation in the United States," 
was published. In 1894 and 1895 Dr. Walker was special agent 
for the Massachusetts Board to investigate the unemployed, and 
also did special work on the question of contract and city labor, 
and relief on public works. He became identified with Colo- 
rado College in 1895, and since 1897 has been Professor of 
Political and Social Science.

professor |p. £. Eoudna. 

Pearl Eugene Doudna was born in a log cabin in the town of Marshall, 
Wisconsin, August i8th, r868. He began his common school education at the 
age of five, walking two miles to school every morning. 

When but ten years old he showed remarkable ability in solving difficult 
mathematical problems. Often at night, after he had gone to bed, he would 
call out to his father for the answer of some example on which he had been 
working; and it was found that he seldom had the answer wrong. At the 
age of twelve he helped to survey his father's farm, winning the admiration of 
the surveyors by his accurate work. 

He finished the High School course in three years, at the head of his class. 
During this course he taught school for one year, and in his examination for 
a teachers' certificate there was one problem which only two candidates attempted 
to solve ; Doudna was one of these. His method was at first declared incorrect; 
but on closer examination the authorities admitted that it was right, and that 
it was a much clearer and shorter solution than any they had vet seen. His 
district school teacher said that he had learned more mathematics in his walks 
with Doudna than in all the years of his schooling. His High School teacher 
said of him: "1 never asked Pearl Doudna a question that he did not answer 

In the spring of 1889 Doudna joined the Presbyterian Church, of Richland 
Center, Wisconsin, and remained a member until the time of his death.. 

In 1890 he entered the University of Wisconsin, and again finished the 
course in three years, taking the degree of A. B. in 1894, after teaching for 
one year. While in the University he was a member of the Athene Literary 
Society, and at one time represented it in the inter-society debate, in whicb 
Doudna's side was victorious. 

After his graduation he was urged to become a candidate for the posi- 
tion of county superintendent, in his own county, but he preferred to remain 
in the university as a Fellow in Mathematics. He was successful as a teacher, 
winning the love and respect of his students. At the same time he entered 
into original research with every prospect of success ; but a serious illness inter- 
rupted this work, and caused him, in 1895, to come to Colorado Springs, where 
he accepted a position in the Department of Mathematics in Colorado College, 
which he held until his death. 

Here he continued his original research in the mathematical treatment 
of the motion of liquids, and won favorable comment by the results of his experi- 
ments. He also took charge of the Meterological Department, and performed 
his duties in that capacity with great accuracy. In 1897 he received the M. A. 
degree from his Alma Mater, and in 1899 was made a Professor of Mathematics 
in Colorado College. He died January 7, 1900, after an illness of a few days. 

It is not necessary to speak of Professor Doudna's character nor his work 
and influence in Colorado College. Every student knows how he built up the 
literary societies, what a deep interest he took in the whole life of the college, 
and how faithfully and patiently he performed his duties, day by day, in the 
face of suffering. Those who knew him best loved him because of his brotherly 
interest, his tenderness and sympathy ; those who did not know him so well, 
respected and honored him for his earnestness, his faithfulness and his uncom- 
promising adherence to truth and righteousness. In the death of Professor 
Doudna, Colorado College lost one of her noblest friends — one in whom the 
students "saw indeed a hero."

DHERE is something strangely happy in the countenance of our beloved Presi- 
dent when things are "coming his way." Never, since the raising of the 

Pearson's fund, has he had such a satisfied mien as on Insignia Day, Novem- 
ber i, 1899. His face fairly beamed on the wearers of the caps and gowns, 
and well did we know that in the class of 1900 his highest hopes were realized. 
In this class he saw strength, intellect, character — all in a word, that he calls 

Individually we are great; collectively we are greater. Collectively we 
are not quite four years of age, yet we have summoned councils, submitted 
resolutions and developed a faculty for abolishing "vermiform appendices." 
It is not the purpose of this sketch to relate the details of our class history, 
nor to speak of the individual members — that would take volumes. Our past 
is replete with victories. In no instance whatever has this noble array of young 
men and women been outdone. We have a record — the class of '99 recognized 
the fact ; the class of 1901 does not attempt to deny it — but we write not to 
recount our excellencies and our achievements, but only to make clear our 
characteristic position in the life of Colorado College. 

When we matriculated in '96, a little spirit never before seen, heard nor 
felt on the campus, matriculated also. His name is "Class Spirit;" and he 
made his first public appearance at an athletic meeting early in the fall. The 
cane, the Freshmen and the Spirit took front seats without opposition. But 
opposition was what they desired, for the cane was green, the class fresh and 
the Spirit fair. The result was the first regulated cane rush between Fresh- 
men and Sophmores. The Freshmen, as a matter of course, won. 

But this little member which had entered the life of the community so 


quietly, soon became unruly and brought disgrace upon bis verdant devotees. The 
first, last and only tonsorial perpetration in Colorado College was instigated by 
him, for which act he had a two months rustication. 

The stuff for the candy 
Was stolen by "Sandy," 
The scissors were handy ; 
The chance was a dandy. 
The road, it was mazy, 
The place was a daisy, 
The deed, it was hazy, 
The fellows were crazy, 
And Prexie was blazy. 

But he soon was back again, and next the flag race was on. First, 
the red and white flag of 1900 floated over Palmer Hall, then the blue flag of 
'99 ! again the red and white, again the blue. Flags were burned and poles were 
greased ; but we have a Brownie that can scale even greased poles when the 
reputation of 1900 is at stake. The climax was reached, however, when the 
naughty-naughts sawed off the Palmer Hall flag-pole while Prexie was deliver- 
ing an ethical talk in chapel on the "rights of property." Thev "fessed," and 
for once President Slocum smiled on an evil deed. 

The second and last annual cane rush was also won by the class of 1900, 
and won against great odds. Score, 1 1 to 6. But such a great dust was 
raised, such a crowd of spectators attracted and such superior tactics displayed 
by the commanding Sophs, that the Faculty immediately saw the injustice, and 
since then "have made other arrangements." 

During the Sophomore year the spirit did not "flag," but painted smoke- 
stacks instead. Prexie's vice, however, failed to appreciate those laboriously 
executed and artistic designs, which the "naughty" ones hailed with such 
delight. Our friends, the Juniors, will recall this allusion ; they also have a 
faint recollection, no doubt, of a certain wheel ride to the canon. If not, a few 
lines of the song they sang on the car coming townward will renew all the old 

My saddle has gone with the Sophies, 

My saddle and I disagree, 
My saddle has gone with the Sophies, 

Oh, bring back my saddle to me. 

But this is only one instance of things found missing during that fam- 
ous year. Youths are known to have braved the wintry blasts with nothing 
but the provisions of nature to protect their precious heads. Nineteen-hundred 
and One was plunged into darkness that year, and has been looking to us for 
light ever since. 

The most intensely exciting and closely won victory in our history, how- 
ever, took place on Decoration Day, 1898. From time to time it looked as if 


we would go down before our foe, the Freshmen, in that fiercely waged battle 
on the diamond, but finally, thanks to the Spirit, loyal girls and stolen bases, 
our mighty nine batted Bennie and his brave followers over the fence to the 
tune of 15 to 14. 

Most fittingly the last conquest of the year was intellectual. The first 
and second places in the oratorical contest in 1898 were given to members of 
the class of 1900. 

As Juniors, we began to show the deportment so becoming to the student 
who has reached that dignity. ( )ur little mate, Class Spirit, who had so suc- 
cessfully piloted us across the stormy Freshmen and Sophomore waters, now 
began to appear in dress suit, quite as fascinating and engaging as we ourselves 
had become. When we celebrated the winning of Field Day events, he was 
the one most in evidence; when, on Commencement Day, our class led in honors, 
he was the first to applaud ; when we had a grand march with the stolen spade, 
it was he who beat time for the procession. 

When we were Freshmen we spoke, understood and thought as Freshmen, 
but when we became Seniors we put away Freshmen things. Time often wit- 
nesses marvelous changes, and four brief years have developed "hazers" into 
"arbitrators." There will be no more battles of the Kinnikinick, nor any other 
battles. The rare prerogative of arbitration has been ours, and until civiliza- 
tion, in its westward march, proclaims class spirit a "relic of barbarism" the 
Freshmen-Sophomore contests will be arranged by older and wiser heads. So 
beneath our thirty mortar-boards there moves about the campus more dignity 
than thirty spacious robes can conceal. 

An attempt has been made in these brief allusions to our past to show 
that the class, throughout its course, has been a unit, a vital force in the life 
of the institution. With the same zeal for our college that we had for our 
class, we have entered into her social, literary and religious life. The glee 
clubs have had our class-mates among their members, and it can be said with- 
out boasting that to the "Senior Big Four," the pride of our athletic hearts, 
is largely due the credit for the place which Colorado College now holds on 
the gridiron. 

But we are going soon. Much has been done to stop us, but now we 
see plainly that the institution, which claims our tenderest memories, is at last 
ready to turn us out. We are told that there is a new century to be started 
and that the best young men and women must be ready to help it begin aright, 
so we must go. Being modest, we cannot say what we feel about the void we 
shall leave, but go we must. We hope that the world will appreciate us even 
more than our college contemporaries, who have been favored by our presence 
in the institution for four years, and that we shall be able to help society as 
successfully as we have influenced the development of our Alma Mater. Our 
humility keeps us silent as to what we are sure we can do. 


Senior Class IRolL 

Blanche Atchison. — Miss Atchison was born at Fredericksburg, 
Ohio — no matter about the date. After graduating from the Colorado 
Springs High School she entered Colorado College in 1896. She has 
been popular in every phase of college life. Her work in the Minerva 
Literary Society, of which she was president for one term, has been of 
a high order. Her greatest delight has been to play the piano in chapel. 
The avowed ( ?) purpose of her life is to be an old maid school-marm. 

Arthur W. Bailey. — Arthur Bailey was born somewhere in Maine 
in the year 1876. He began his school life in the Leadville public 
schools and seems to have spent his time mainly in their improvement, un- 
til he entered Colorado College in 1896 as a member of the class of 1900. 
Bailey has been very prominent in the literary and social life of the col- 
lege and his only regret is that he never was appreciated enough to 
be given a place on the 'Varsity teams. His future occupation is still 
to be discovered. 

Charles Dana Barnes. — Barnes is one of our farmer boys. He 
is a native of Wisconsin, in which State he received his preparatory 
education and part of his collegiate work before coming to Colorado 
College in 1897. He got here in time to take part in the famous cane 
rush of that fall, but on the side of the Freshmen. Seeing our super- 
iority in cane rushes, he hurried up and joined the class of 1900 the 
next vear. His chief characteristic is his °iant stature. 

William Cecil Browning. — Pueblo did a good thing for C. C. 
when it sent us plucky little Browning. From his Freshman year he 
has been one of the mainstays in foot-ball, being captain for two years. 
He helped to organize and edit the Tiger. By his aid we won the 
Nebraska debate in 1899. He has done much for the Apollonian 
Society, for the base-ball and track teams. Besides all this, he is a 
good student. If he was'nt so peculiar! 

Fred Seymour Caldwell. — "Fritz" Caldwell was born November 
11, 1876, in Monroe County, Michigan. He came to Colorado in 1891 
and graduated from Longmont High School in 1896. That fall he 
entered Colorado College. He expects, with Prexy's kind permission, 
to graduate next June. Caldwell has been a prominent member of the 
foot-ball team ever since entering college. He has also taken a very 
active part in debating and Y. M. C. A. work. "Fritz" has a decided 
preference for co-educational colleges, and is looking for a co-ed. law 
school to continue his preparation for his life work. 


Dora May Cathcart. — This fair maiden is a native of Iowa, where 
she received the early part of her education. Graduating from the 
Colorado Springs High School in 1896, she entered Colorado College 
the following fall. She has taken an active part in the life of the col- 
lege. Minerva, social life and basket-ball have alike felt her influence, 
and in each, as in her studies, she has occupied a first place. Her 
characteristic modesty prevents her disclosing fully her future plans. 

Stella Georgina Chambers. — Miss Chambers claims as her birth- 
place the City of St. Louis, Mo. She also asserts that she must have 
gone to school there for some time. She attended the East Denver 
High School until she entered Colorado College in 1896. She has ever 
been a most loval member of the class of 1900 and has held the palm 
for energv in organizing parties and picnics. Miss Chambers' most 
prominent characteristic is her willingness to share other people's troubles. 
She intends to teach school. 

James Edwin Chapman. — Mr. Chapman, another Iowan, did not 
lend his genial presence to Colorado College until his Senior year. The 
previous years of his college course were spent in Northwestern Univer- 
sity, where he was especially prominent in literary lines, being editor of the 
college paper and a member of the Junior Syllabus Board. In Colo- 
rado College he has entered enthusiastically into all phases of college 
life. May "Chappy" be a success in his chosen work, that of a news- 
paper man. 

Ely Earl Cooley. — Cooley was born in the State of Illinois, but 
has spent most of his life in Trinidad. He attended the Trinidad High 
School and was later graduated from Tillotson Academy in 1896. That 
fall he entered Colorado College and soon gained a reputation for grand- 
stand foot-ball playing, which he has been trying ever since to destroy. 
Earl has been prominent in class, literary and athletic affairs all 
through his course, and held the position of President in Pearson's 
Literary Society the last of his Senior year. He expects to be a dema- 
gogue, but has not decided whether to espouse the Socialist or Anarchist 


Christian Jean Diack. — Miss Diack was born in Canada. Sub- 
sequent facts of her history she refuses to divulge. However, it is 
rumored that she has been a very earnest, enthusiastic student and Min- 
ervan, and a very loyal, though oftentimes pessimistic, member of the 
class of 1900. Her chief pride is that she took the part of Athene in 
the Greek play. She will, doubtless, develop into an excellent Greek 
and German professor. 


Abner Downey. — Downey claims to have first seen the light in 
Ohio some 26 years ago. After going to school in his native place for 
several decades he migrated to Colorado, entering the State Normal at 
Greelev in 1891. He graduated there in 1895, and for two years was 
Principal of the San Miguel schools. He entered Colorado College in 
1897 and will receive his degree with the class of 1900. Downey's one 
aim in life is to find a hetter hoarding place than the Philadelphia!! Hotel. 

Elmore Floyd. — Floyd entered Colorado College in 1896. A 
"Tiger" for four years ; member of Pearson's, filling many of its offices 
at various times; and Treasurer of Philadelphian Hotel 1899-1900; 
"Limpy" is a "hail fellow well met." He never had a bad word to say 
about — himself. His all consuming ambition has been to see his name 
in print. He was one of the strongest characters in the "Return of 

Albert Converse Ingersoll. — Mr. Ingersoll received his early train- 
ing in the schools of Cleveland, Ohio. He has been with the class of 
1900 throughout the four years, and been known especially as an excel- 
lent member of Apollonian and as editor-in-chief of the Tiger. He 
has also taken high honors. He can be very agreeable when he chooses, 
but generally he gives the impression — to the girls, at least — of being 
"sufficient unto himself." 

Alfred Tenner Isham. — Mr. Isham claims Alfred, New York, as 
his birth-place. Before coming to Colorado College he studied in Yank- 
ton Academy and College in South Dakota. There he was known as 
a gifted student in literature, oratory and elocution. He served as liter- 
ary and local editor of the Yankton College paper. During his year 
with us he has been a student of ability. We do not know much else 
about him except that he expects to teach next year. 

Edna May Jacques. — Miss Jacques was born in Pittsfield, Illinois — 
when, it pertaineth not to our history to relate. She came to Colorado 
and, after graduating from the Colorado Springs High School, entered 
Colorado College in 1896 as a very commonplace Freshwoman. Her hon- 
ors since she came to college have been so many and varied that space 
forbids our ennumerating them. Suffice it to say that in picnics and 
parties, as well as in Greek and Philosophy, she has stood at the head 
of her class. Miss Jacques has not yet decided upon a future 


Lillian May Johnson. — "She's from Missoury." She wa- 
"showed" through the preparatory part of her education in the Colorado 
Springs High School. She entered Colorado College in 1896 and hopes 
to graduate in 1900. Member of Minerva; holding offices in various 
organizations galore ; Dean's assistant and member of the 'Varsity Basket 
Hall team. Her favorite animal is her dog, "Do-do." Has she ambi- 
tions? O, yes! Plenty of them. "She'll be a lawyer bve and bye." 

Leon a Kiteley. — Miss Kiteley got most of her early education at 
the Longmont Academy and has been receiving the finishing touches at 
Colorado College for four years. She has been President of her class and 
Corresponding Secretary of the Y. W. C. A., President and Vice-President 
of the Phceden Club, a member of the "floor committee and other things" 
ad infinitum. She claims to have had all the diseases of children except 
diphtheria, and her greatest boast is that she was the first inmate of 
"the infirmary." 

Edgar Nelson Layton. — Seven states claim to have been the birth- 
place of this dignified Senior, but historians award the honor to Missouri. 
Mr. Layton spent most of his early life in Grand Junction, Colorado, 
and came to Colorado College in 1896. Among other things of note, 
he has been Assistant Professor in Chemistry, a prominent member and 
officer of the Glee Club, and a shining light in Pearsons Society. Next 
year he will enter the Sophomore class of Rush Medical College, there 
to prepare for the work of a medical missionary. 

Mary Lockhart. — Miss Lockhart came from Arkansas, from a town 
named Fort Smith. Nobody ever heard of it before, but it ought to be fam- 
ous hereafter. What little education she ever received was obtained in the 
schools of this city, and in a play school called Wolfe Hall. Her chief 
characteristic is the kindly smile with which she greets everyone, from 
Prexie to Sobel. 

Eva May. — Miss May first entered Colorado College in 1895, but 
hearing the tread of the coming class of 1900, decided to wait a year for 
as. She has had a leading part throughout her college course in the 
social and religious life of the college. Eva is most versatile. She can 
do anything from writing a poem to baking biscuit. "The man that 
gets her will do mighty well." She can no more help punning than she 
can help smiling. Her admirers are legion. 


Roy Milo McClintock. — Roy Venus de Milo was born at West 
Union, Iowa. He received his preparatory training at Lyons High School, 
Chicago. He entered Colorado College in 1896. He has very kindly 
lent his influence to every phase of college life. So numerous are the 
offices he has held and the honors received that we cannot mention them 
lere. His chief characteristic is his absent-mindedness. His hobby is 
lis diary. His favorite author, Ego. 

John Newell. — John is a long way away from home, as he was 
born at Belfast, Ireland. He attended Montalto School, St. Enochs and 
Professor Dawse's Preparatory College, Dublin. He won gold and sil- 
ver medals in elocution in Belfast, and has been assisting in the Depart- 
ment of Elocution in Colorado College during this year. Though the 
busiest man in college since entering, '98, he has found time to enter 
heartily into our life. He has won great credit as tenor soloist in the 
Glee Club for two years. 

Anne Parker. — Miss Anne Parker doesn't look very stubborn, 
but she is. She absolutely refused to allow any biographical matter, or 
any hints as to her characteristics, to be placed after her name. Here 
is her picture, judge for yourself. 

P. S. She is a bright and earnest student, and a jolly girl. 

Olive Riggs. — Miss Riggs spent the early years of her life in Santee 
Agency, Nebraska. Afterwards she moved to South Dakota, where 
she spent three years in Yankton College. In 1898 she came to Colo- 
rado College, and, recognizing the superior merits of the class of 1900, 
joined that body. Though very quiet and unobtrusive, she is recog- 
nized as being one of the best students in the class, one of those who 
have received honors. Her violin is her chief treasure. 

Grace Brewer Smith. — Grace Smith is one of the sweetest and 
most conscientious girls in the Senior class. She was born in Indian- 
apolis, Indiana, and received her preparatory training at Oxford Sem- 
inary, Ohio, and at our own Cutler Academy. She has been especially 
active in Y. W. C. A. work, having been President of the association, 
and in 1899 a delegate to the Geneva convention. Minerva will lose in 
her a very loval member and efficient officer. 


Glenn C. Spurgeon. — Mr. Spurgeon used to live on a farm in Iowa, 
and there lie learned to be a very giddy, though entertaining lad. To 
see him on a picnic, one would never suspect that he intended to be a 
missionary; that he had been President of the Y. M. C. A. and of the 
Apollonian Club, as well as Assistant Professor in Chemistry and leader 
of the Volunteer Band. He has also been an indispensible member of 
the Glee Club and of the class of 1900. The influence of his earnest, 
cheerful life will long be felt in Colorado College. 

Andrew Newton Thompson. — "Thomp," or "Merry Andrew," 
as he is indifferently called, began life in Brooklyn, Xew York, April 28, 
1876. He came to Colorado in 1892 and was a student at Colorado 
Springs High School for three years. He graduated from the State 
Normal in 1897, taught school long enough to enable him to begin 
theorizing on the subject, and then entered Colorado College in 1898. 
Although he has been with the class but two short years, "Thomp" has 
shed lustre on it by bis devotion to chicken raising and his ability to 
argue a point with Prexie. 

Robert Turnstall Walker. — Herr "Fussganger" was born at Port 
Henry, New York, Anno Domini 1879. At the mature age of five years 
lie entered the schools of our national capitol. In 1889 he took up his 
residence in Denver, and was graduated, fossils and all, from the North 
Denver High School in time to enter college with the rest of the class 
of igoo, with whom he plans to graduate, Providence and the faculty 
permitting. Walker's chief pride is his scrupulous discharge of social 
duties and his ability to identify any bit of Mother Earth on a two min- 
utes' notice. 

Moritz Wormser. — Wormser is, as he himself declares, a Dutch- 
man. He was born in Heidelberg in 1878. He attended a German 
gymnasium for several years before going to Switzerland to live. In 
1896 he came to America and entered the class of 1899, Columbia Col- 
lege. In bis Senior year he was forced to leave college on account of 
ill health and come to Colorado. Last fall he changed his matricula- 
tion from one "C. C." to another, and became a member of our present 
Senior class. 

Rudolph Zumstein. — His life has been short but eventful. He 
is the youngest member of the class, but we shall not blame him for 
that, nor can he help it that he was born at Berne, Switzerland. The 
fiist part of his college course he took in Iowa, and came to Colorado 
College last fall for his Senior year. He has been an active member 
of Pearsons and an earnest association worker. He answers to the 
name of "Zummy." His greatest ambition is to be known as "Mrs. 
Zumstein's husband."

We came in '97, and how glad everybody was to see us, and especially 
the Sophomores. They really put themselves out to make us have a good time. 
We were invited to join them in a cane-rush, and we rushed beautifully, but 
forgot to keep our hands on the cane, so the class of naughty-naught said we 
were beaten. But we didn't mind, for we had a very nice party in the "Gym" 
that night. It was during the preparation for this party that there occurred 
the strange disappearance of one of our young ladies. It was afterwards found 
that she had fallen through a hole in the floor instead of being translated, as 
was at first supposed. 

Not many weeks had passed before the faculty and older students real- 


ized what a valuable acquisition we were, and they began to treat us with more 
respect than is ordinarily accorded to Freshman classes. But the class of 
naughty-naught, with its characteristic failure to know a good thing when it 
sees it, kept trying to divert our minds from our studies and destroy our inno- 
cent pleasures. They took our bicycle saddles when we went to the canon ; 
they disconnected the electric wires when Professor Parsons was giving us a 
part}' — in short, they aroused us to righteous indignation. But our opportunity 
soon came. 

In the still hours of the night, while merriment reigned below, a band 
of Freshman youths, led by one Spartan maiden, made their way up the back 
stairs and secured as trophies a choice collection of hats. The class of naughty- 
naught doesn't talk much about that. And now our genius began really to 
assert itself. There was a new smokestack on the engine-house, and it occurred 
to naughty-one that its name in red near the summit would not only look well 

from the campus, but would also aid any 
visitor in determining which was really 
the class in Colorado College. But the 
Sophomores proved meddlesome again, and 
our 'oi was soon replaced by a paltry bo; 
but not for long, for those flaming figures, 
'o i , were soon shining brightly from their 
lofty height once more, and would still 
have been burning like a beacon there, had 
not Prexie heartlessly sent up a Senior 
with a pail of black paint. 

One other event occurred in our Fresh- 
man year — our base-ball game with the 
Sophomores. It is hardly worth mention- 
ing, for the result will probably appear in 
the headlines of the history of the class 
of naughty-naught. Poor things ! 

Our Sophomore year began with a concession. At the express wish of 
the faculty we spared the lives of the Freshmen, and abolished the cane-rush. 

And now comes one of the things on which our chief fame rests. There 
was an old tradition in the college that the Sophomore class should give a bar- 
becue, but through the incompetence of our predecessors, or for some other 
reason, this custom had passed out of existence. Thus was it reserved for 
naughty-one to revive this ancient practice, and to astonish even its most ad- 
miring friends by the skill with which the whole undertaking was carried out. 
Once again our artistic aspirations asserted themselves. There appeared 


on the roof of Palmer Hall two large 'oi's, very neatly done, in white paint. 

At this time was perpetrated the deed which 
struck all beholders with horror. The Library 
lawn was desecrated. In the middle of its vel- 
K»k vety surface appeared a monstrous '02. All 
traces of the crime were soon effaced, but the 
H 'oi's remained on Palmer to the end of the year. 

When spring came we played another base- 
ball game; but we don't care much for athletics, 
although as Juniors, we have cheered the Fresh- 
men on to victory. 

Our aim during the whole of our course has 
been to reilect credit upon the college ; and this 
we have done so efficiently as to incur the eternal 
gratitude of faculty and students. We are also a very modest class. 

This year we have published the first annual ever issued by the students 
of Colorado College. Of its merits our readers may judge for themselves.

It is a weighty task to write the history of so great a class as the Sopho- 
more — a task none the more easy because of the limited time the class has had 
for the. making of history. The upper classes have had time to pass through 
numerous experiences and great evolutions, while we have had but two years. 
However, the present Sophomore class has filled those two years about as full 
as any Sophomore class in the history of Colorado College. 

The history of these particular Sophomores has been rather more of an 
intellectual or social one, than a mere record of events. We have served our 
time rolling logs and wrestling with the Binomial Theorem. Some of us were even 
re-elected and served two terms. We have completed with more or less "eclat" — 
we did not learn that word until this year — our Freshman Latin. The 
days when we used to don our Lincoln-green hunting costumes and, with rifle 
in hand, sallv forth in quest of the blithesome grasshopper — of use for purposes 
of scientific investigation — are but memories. Grasshoppers interest us no 
longer. We write original stories with mixed metaphors now. We teach the 
world that the descendants of a man who has been scalped inherit his tendency 
to baldness, and other facts none the less interesting to the scientific world 
because unfamiliar. 

The Sophomores have grown from timid and retiring youths and maidens 
to dignified and gracious young men and women who appear as shining lights 
at functions and teas. Our social history is indeed a glowing one. From the 
night of our first party, when, rather than stay from the festivities, some of our 
invalid members permitted themselves to be carried on bicycles, supported on 
both sides by their friends — up to the present day, we have known one glittering 
series of brilliant triumphs. We no longer play "Jenkins up" for amusement; 
we have out-grown that, and our gatherings now have all the splendor and 
gallantry of the "beau-monde." 

Our athletic history is a balanced one. We vanquished the Sophomores 
in base-ball when we were Freshmen, and would have vanquished the Fresh- 
men in foot-ball when we were Sophomores, had not the Storm King cancelled 
our dates. The Freshmen, however, won the Field Day contest from us. Our 
class representative was not so fond of bread and molasses as the Freshman , 
and our Indian wrestler had spent his time in cultivating lightness and grace 
in his art until he scarcely equalled in effectiveness, the more substantial repre- 
sentative of the Freshmen. 

The Sophomore class is well represented in all the college athletics. Many 
of the best foot-ball and base-ball players of the last two years have been mem- 
bers of '02. We have taken our part, too, in the literary life of the college, and 


have produced some orators of whom any class might be proud, one of whom 
received first place in the local oratorical contest. 

We have lost many of our leading spirits, and we shall never cease to 
mourn for them ; but we have received into our number many who bid fair to 
rival them in our friendship ; and we hope, all of us, to go through and finish 
as bravely as we have gone thus far.

All things have a beginning. From this first nucleus, large or small, are 
evolved all the accomplishments, successes or failures which come in after years. 
In beginning, we always take the optimistic view of things, and hope for the best. 
Thus it is, or rather we hope it may be, with the class of Nineteen-three. 
In making its initial bow before the public, the class makes no boasts of what 
it has done or what it will do. Having stood as a class organization but a few 
short months, the first epoch only, of its history can be chronicled. So far this 
history has been as bright as any classman could desire that of his class to be. 

Our first lesson in college life was received at the Kinnickinnick, when 
the Sophomores made a determined assault upon us with the intention of pur- 
loining our refreshments and breaking up the party. Suffice it to say that 
after the mists, red pepper and Profs, had cleared away, the party continued 
as arranged. The Battle of the Kinnickinnick will be remembered long after 
we have passed out from these walls. 

Although this was our first introduction to college life, the impression 
left was rather a favorable one. We now had the confidence of our friends, 
the Juniors, and the respect of the Sophomores and Seniors. According to pres- 
ent regulations, this was the last unregulated "class scrap" to occur in Colorado 
College, so we consider ourselves fortunate in having entered college when we 

Later followed the class contest with the Sophomores, arranged by the 
Spirit Committee. Again fortune smiled benignly upon us, and victory was 
ours. It can be said modestly that if one thing more than another helped us 
to win this contest, it was the spirit manifested by the class as a body. 

Upon that day we chased the Sophs up their "sycamore tree," where they 
remained until they came down and challenged us to an encounter upon the 
gridiron. Of course the challenge was accepted, and for six days practice con- 
tinued early and late. The fateful day at last arrived ; but whether the fates 
were for, or against us, will never be known. Because of the extreme inclemency 
of the weather, the game, by mutual consent of the respective captains of the 
teams, was declared off. 

The first epoch of the class life has, indeed, been bright. We hope to 
continue to advance in the future as steadily as we have during our short past. 
What will be accomplished can only be predicted by what has been done. As 
victory has been ours, we rejoice; as defeat may come, we hope it may bring 
with it no disgrace, but may only spur us on to even greater efforts. 

Rockity, rockity, rockity rick ;

Previous to 1898 the special students of the college had been somewhat 
on the edge of things ; for, not being identified with any particular class, they 
had lost all the fun of class parties, class picnics and class scraps ; but in the 
fall of 1898 some thoughtful student called a meeting of the Specials, and a 
class organization was effected. This was successful, and many delightful 
social affairs were given during the year. 

Soon after the opening of college last fall, the hospitable wife of Pro- 
fessor Cajori, the class officer, invited the Specials to her home and enter- 
tained them in her usual cordial maimer. During the evening the first business 
meeting of the year was held, and officers were elected. The personnel of the 
class had changed greatly, only seven or eight of its former members remaining. 
Many of the shining lights of last year were gone, but in their places had come 


a bevy of charming young ladies, and a few young men who made up in quality 
what they lacked in quantity. 

On a delightful afternoon in October, the Specials held their first picnic 
in Cheyenne Canon. The party was ably chaperoned by two of the younger 
professors and two favored Seniors. So successful was this picnic that another 
was held on Election Day, with Mrs. Cajori as presiding genius. From this 
picnic grew up an organization in the Special class known as the Rocky Moun- 
tain Rovers, alias, the Daring Dauntless Dalliers. The club is composed of a 
number of accomplished mountain climbers, who frequently scour the precipi- 
tous mountain paths in search of adventure. The Special class boasts, also, of 
a musical club, the great and only Special Trio. Though its members may 
never belong to the alumni of Colorado College, the Special class prides itself 
upon its college spirit. Its representatives are in almost every department of 
college life ; in the glee-clubs, the literary societies and in athletics ; and no class 
is more loyal to the college. At the foot-ball game at Boulder, last fall, a good 
sized delegation of Specials was present, and those who were unable to go 
were among the first to welcome back the returning heroes. 

The Special class is positively the most unique in college. First con- 
sider the character of its members. In this body of students may be found 
all grades, from the student just out of High School, who is taking only 
Freshman studies, to the advanced scholar, who is taking a post-graduate 
course. Here are musical geniuses who are perfecting themselves in the con- 
servatory ; here are those talented in literary work who, under Professor Parson's 
supervision, are adding the polish to natural ability; here are budding artists 
who will some day be world famous ; scientists and linguists, mathematicians 
and historians. Some Specials remain but for a few months ; others, the "regu- 
larly irregular" ones, remain for years ; some take but one study, others have 
a heavier course than the regular students. 

One remarkable thing about the Special is his rare consistency. The 
Freshman one year, can neither see, hear, nor think, of anything outside of the 
Freshman's class. Every Freshman is his friend, every Sophomore his deadly 
enemy. A short twelve-month passes, and behold what a change has come ! 
With a lordly air he struts around and proclaims himself no longer a Freshman, 
but a Sophomore. Every Freshman is now looked upon with scorn, every 
Sophomore with approval. But with the Special it is different. Once a Special, 
always a Special. Occasionally a student in this class allows his college spirit 
to overbalance his class loyalty, and, desiring to add lustre to the fame of the 
college alumni, blooms out into a Senior and graduates with honors. Such 
cases, however, are rare and isolated. 

In conclusion, we may claim, since everything unique is interesting, that 
the Special is not only the most unique, but the most interesting class in college.

For particulars go to the Freshmen. 

We've had much class fun,

Though in colors we might have been calmer. 

As for direful mishaps, 

And joys, too? Perhaps.

When the work of historians is limited to the record of but a short time, and 
when it is of such a nature that friends and enemies alike agree, their task is com- 
paratively easy. And such is ours. We are the chroniclers of the Sophomore Preps, 
who, having now fully recovered from the affliction which inevitably takes 
possession of the minds of Freshmen Preps immediately upon becoming mem- 
bers of that class, are beginning to realize that there are others, and our heads 
are again assuming their natural size. 

Though we speak of it modestly, our class has much to be proud of. We 
have in our class the "Dream," and some of those modern Knights whose motto 
is "Sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish, I give my heart and hand to 
the fair sex." We can hold our own against anv other class in the recitation 
room, in the literary societies, and on the athletic field. 

Our class is well represented in the literary societies, some of our mem- 
bers holding high offices. One of them, while reading a paper, in his anxiety 
to excel, was so confused that the critic said if he had had his eyes shut, he 
would not have known whether the member was grinding sausage or delivering 
an address. 

On the athletic field we shine most of all. We have several substitutes 
on the college foot-ball team, and a class team that has no superior in the whole 
academy. The first class challenged us to a game of foot-ball, and for two 
weeks both teams practiced steadily. On the day before the game our team 
had light practice, and there was much guessing as to what the score would be. 
Some guessed 30 to o, others 50 to o in our favor ; but one enthusiast wanted 
to bet one to two that we would not beat them 75 to o. It might have been 
even that — but the next day it snowed. In base-ball, we are equally fortunate, 
having, among other good players, the captain of the academy base-ball team. 

Last, though not least, we maintain the standard of morals in the academy. 
At one of our parties we had with us five chaperones, there being but twenty 
members present. 

And now, kind reader, having told you all that our friends would like 
you to know, we must part, to meet again in the next Annual.

It is seldom that a class so scholarly, well-behaved, good-looking and 
so full of that harmonious feeling termed "Class Spirit," starts up that ladder 
ending in a cap and gown. The members individually, and as a whole, are A 
number one, first-class in every respect, and from the first have held together 
in a manner which is unusual for a new class. It is difficult for a class com- 
posed largely of students unacquainted with each other to have much interest 
in their class as an organization, and some time is required for their co-operation. 

At first the class had its trials and tribulations, which appeared — Oh ! 
so hard to overcome. But soon most of the difficulties were either overcome 
or forgotten, and all was serene. To be sure, a certain energetic gentleman 
appeared to be a trifle harsh and extreme in his measures of Latin precepts, 
but his wisdom was early apparent in the beneficial results. The instructor 
in English was so proud of her class that she gave certain members a holiday 
occasionally. The progress of the drawing class has been marked — not all pencil 
marks either. In mathematics, the class has been summed up very favorably. 

Of course you have heard of the foot-ball team's glorious season, and 
of the various defeats they gave to local teams. The captain well deserves the 
credit of harmonizing a crowd of pig-skin chasers into a winning combination, 
and the team merits considerable praise for their work during the season. Un- 
doubtedly, a strong team will appear on the diamond, as there is considerable 
good material to round into shape. 

The first jollification, aside from those tendered by the instructors, was 
held in North Cheyenne Canon. The dark mysteries of the Canon of Shadows 
were found to be very interesting from certain lights, according to the ideas 
of those occupying the rear seats. Since then several class parties have been 
held, and on each occasion a very agreeable time was enjoyed by all.

The Conservatory of Music was established by the Trustees of Colorado 
College in 1894. It was not organized until the need for it was strongly felt, 
and it is now an important branch of college study. In 1895 Colorado College 
was so fortunate as to secure Professor Rubin Goldmark as Director of the 
Conservatory. It is due, mainly, to his genius and efforts that the work of 
this department is so highly satisfactory. 

For nearly six years after the Conservatory was organized, music in- 
structors and pupils were greatly hindered in their progress because the college 
had no music hall. A little frame building of one room, situated back of Mont- 
gomery Hall, as if to be hidden by that dormitory, was called "the Conservatory." 
Music students were forced to obtain the use of pianos in private houses for 
practice. It was not possible for the work of the conservatory to be well con- 
centrated under these circumstances. But Perkins Memorial Building was 
built in 1899 for the Music and Art Departments, and since its dedication, last 
February, the scope and influence of the Music Department has widened very 
much. With the ten practice rooms and with the exceptionally fine organ in the 
auditorium, the students of music feel that at last they have, so to speak, a work- 
shop of their own. 

The courses of study offered in the Conservatory are : Piano, violin, 
organ, voice culture, harmony, counter-point and composition. During the 
winter man}' musical advantages are offered to the students of this department. 
They are admitted to the Colorado Springs Choral Society, which, under the 
leadership of the Director of the Conservatory, meets once a week and gives 
two concerts a year. A class in solfeggio and singing at sight is organized at 
the beginning of each year. Many special lectures and concerts are given, 
among them a series of organ recitals by Professor Clarence W. Bowers, and 
a course, on the operas of Wagner, by Professor Goldmark. The Colorado 
Springs Musical Club provides for bi-weekly musicales for the best home talent, 
and for concerts by world famous artists. 

In short, the standard of the Conservatory is kept on as high a plane as 
that of any other department in the institution. Colorado College may well be 
proud of her Conservatory of Music.

With what pleasure did we move our easels and belongings from the inade- 
quate quarters in Palmer Hall to the magnificently equipped studios of the new 
Perkins Fine Arts Building! Here, indeed, is an atmosphere of art, the rooms 
in themselves being an inspiration, filled with photographs and casts of the great 
pictures and works of art of Europe. 

Surely, if we don't all develop into Michael Angelos and Raphaels, it is 
our own fault. 

The exhibition room is our great delight. Here twice a year will be 
given public exhibitions ; one of local artists, to encourage art in the West ; the 
other a loan exhibit of paintings by old and modern masters. Besides these 
there will be smaller exhibitions always open to the pupils of the Art Department. 

The lectures next vear on German art will be delightful and will be fol- 
lowed by studio talks and lectures on Italian and French art. Since moving 
into our new quarters, a little over two months ago, the Department has in- 
creased three fold, which is most encouraging. 

The Department being modeled after the Paris Ateliers, we are enabled 
to spend as much time as possible in the studios outside of regular class hours, 
and the great enthusiasm and untiring energy of all the pupils recalls the 
beautiful lines of the poet: "Art divine has made the body tutor to the soul."

The Colorado College Alumni Association was formed about 1885, 
although there were graduates prior to this time. The first graduating class 
consisted of two members, Mr. Fred Tuckerman and Mr. Halleck. 

The purpose of this association is to preserve the interest of the Alumni 
in Colorado College ; to promote a spirit of fellowship among its members, and 
to carry on such work in the interest of the college as may be determined from 
time to time. 

At the opening of each college year the Alumni gives a reception to the 
present college Trustees, Faculty and students. 

During commencement week many of the Alumni return to this city to 
attend the Alumni banquet, which is one of the many pleasant features of that 

Two years ago the Alumni presented the college with a fine electrical 
machine, which was greatly appreciated by the Science Department. 

The association now numbers eighty-three members. These, with the 
class of 1900, will bring the number to about no.

"Rah ! Rah ! Rah ! 
Get in line ; 

Yell for the class 
Of Ninety-nine!" 

Beloved Alma Mater, through four swift-fleeting years you cherished us 
within your sheltering" arms and gave us of your stores of learning, some little 
glimpse to each, and best of all, you filled our hearts with throngs of precious 
memories of the sunny days spent in earnest work or happy play within your 
halls and fields. And now, though we have left your protecting care forever, it is 
with grateful hearts that we pause and turn back to live over again those four 
happy years together. 

Before we begin our story we wish to express our grateful appreciation 
to the class of '01 for the space they have given us in their volume. For now, 
in 1900, the class of '99 has vanished from the scenes of college life, and it is 
with a pleasure entirely unexpected that we respond to the invitation to con- 
tribute to these pages. But our history is so interwoven with that of the 
classes that follow us that it seems not out of place in these records. 

When we entered college as poor, homesick Freshmen, we were received 
with great cordiality by the Juniors, the memorable class of '97, and we shall 
never forget the kindness with which they treated us all through our first two 
years. Without them to guide us we should have gone much further astray 
than we did in our first ardent desire to make ourselves known to all the col- 
lege world. In this early time we may have been verdant, as it is said all 
Freshmen are ; and probably we were somewhat in the rough still — at any rate 
the Sophs thought so when we succeeded in carrying one stout cane into chapel 
through the rush that occurred on the steps. Prexie believed it without a 
doubt, as he clearly showed in the disgusted ethical talk with which he greeted 


our performance. Our presumption in giving a mask ball to our bitter enemies, 
the class of '98, drew down upon us the censure of the upper classmen. The 
party was the result of a wager, however, and we could afford to throw college 
etiquette aside, since our orator, Thompson, had beaten the Sophs' in the State 

As Sophomores, it is hard to recall what we did, except in every way 
possible making life disagreeable for the class of Naughty-Naught. Sometimes, 
as in the cane-rush, we found our hands full, for they far out-numbered us, but 
still we succeeded in making them feel that they were unwelcome, and it is now 
a cause for wonder that they had the courage to outstay us. At the end of 
this year we regretfully watched our friends of '97 depart, for we felt that in 
losing them we had lost all that was dignified and noble in the student life — 
'98 was always foolish and frivolous, to the very end. 

When we became Juniors we realized that our time was short for happy, 
light-hearted fun, since in the next year the weight of the college would be up- 
on our shoulders and we should have to pose as the high ideals that our poor 
stumbling friends of Naughty-Naught would try to follow. So we allowed '98 to 
nearly ruin the college and devoted ourselves exclusively to having a good time. 
We shared our fun with the present Junior class, which entered that year, and 
with them formed fast ties of friendship which will never be broken as long 
as memories of college life remain. We gave suppers and picnics and wheel 
rides, moonlight tramps to the mountains, circus parties and skating parties, 
and parties of every description ; yet we never cut our classes and we always 
learned our lessons, and with it all we received the name of the "slowest class 
in college!" In time the hatchet was buried between our class and the Seniors, 
and the day spent together in the mountains by the two classes marked the be- 
ginning of an era of friendly feeling. In June the door was closed in the face 
of '98, and we were not sorry to step into their places as Seniors and the pillars 
of the college. 

With our caps and gowns on Insignia Day, we also assumed the dignity 
and the cares that fall to the lot of a Senior. Our story from that time on 
is one of quiet work and earnest thought and deepening friendship, as we began 
to realize how soon we were to part, and that we were all to take up our work- 
alone without that happy feeling of comradeship which is the most blessed part 
of college life. 

With the coming of June and the last days, we threw care and work to 
the winds. We lunched and dined and picnicked together, and with our friends. 
We settled all grudges against our beloved Faculty when we defeated them in 
a base-ball match with the proud score of 13 to 9. And at last, after Class 
Day, the farewell reception and dinner and the class supper came. Commence- 
ment, and we received our sheepskins and went forth from the college halls, 
each one going reluctantly and looking fondly back at the Alma Mater so dear 


to us all. Wherever we are in the great world we shall cherish a grateful love 
for her in our hearts and an earnest hope for her prosperity. 
In the words of our Class Day song : 

"We come to speak farewell 

To college life to-day. 

Our storied campus, classic halls, 

Will soon be far away. 

"No more on field we'll strive 

On gaining victory bent, 

No more in classic cap and gown 

O'er study pour intent. 

Yet ere we leave thy care, 

Or quit their sacred shrine, 

Oh, Alma Mater, we would tell 

Our love for thee and thine. 

Our constant zeal and true 

Shall ever speak thy praise, 

Our love for thee shall never fail 

Through this or coming days. 

We come to speak farewell 

To college life to-day, 

Our storied campus, classic halls, 

Will soon be far away."

Cbe Scientific Society. 

During the year 1889-90, three new instructors of Colorado College lived 
in Hagerman Hall. This building had just been completed, and its dedication 
marked the first mile-stone on the road of progress as mapped out by President 
Slocum, who had come to the college the previous year. The three new instruc- 
tors were O. H. Richardson, now of the Yale Faculty; G. L. Hendrickson, then 
just from Bonn and Berlin, now connected with the University of Chicago ; 
and F. Cajori, who had resigned his position at the Tulane University of Louis- 
iana, to make his home in Colorado. These three young men and Miss E. 
Wickard, who also roomed at Hagerman Hall, frequently discussed the present 
and future of Colorado College — what it was and what they hoped it soon would 
be. One day Hendrickson and Cajori were pacing up and down the lower cor- 
ridor of Hagerman Hall, waiting for the sound of the dinner bell, and discus- 
sing great problems relating to the college and themselves. They wondered 
whether the college, which had at that time about half a dozen students of col- 
lege rank, would really grow, whether books and apparatus would be forthcom- 
ing, whether there was any ground for hope that they might achieve something 
in the way of scholarship and original research. Cajori suggested to Hendrick- 
son, "why not start a Scientific Society?" The idea was favorably received. 
Miss Wickard and Mr. Richardson promised their support. Prof. Slocum en- 


couraged the plan. Prof. F. H. Loud saw in it the very thing he had wanted 
for years. 

On January 22, 1890, a constitution was adopted and the following officers 
elected : F. H. Loud, President ; Miss E. Wickard and W. Strieby, Vice- 
Presidents ; F. Cajori, Secretary ; O. H. Richardson, Treasurer. The first regu- 
lar meeting was held in February, 1890. 

The objects of the society, as set forth in the constitution, are, "the dis- 
cussion of recent scientific results, the promotion among its members of scien- 
tific inquiry and investigation, and the publication of the more important papers 
read at the meetings." 

If any proof is needed of the zeal displayed by the early workers of the 
society, it is found in the fact that only four months after its organization the 
society published its first issue of scientific papers under the title of "Colorado 
College Studies." The society has become a permanent organization in Colo- 
rado College. Every year since, except one, a volume of "Colorado College 
Studies" has been published. During the first few years the bills for printing 
were met by the annual dues and by contributions from public-spirited citizens 
of Colorado Springs. In 1893 the College Faculty subscribed $1,500 towards 
the "Pearsons Fund." The interest of this sum has been set aside to defray, 
in part, the cost of publication. The "Colorado College Studies" are distributed 
to a large number of scientific societies in the United States and abroad. Ex- 
changes are received from all parts of the world. Many valuable scientific 
articles in the Coburn Library have come to the college in this way. 

As the years pass may the Scientific Society grow in efficiency and become 
an ever increasing power in the intellectual life of Colorado College.

Trie last year has seen a marked advance in all departments of the col- 
lege. New courses of study have been given ; new scholarships have been 
offered ; athletics have had a splendid record. And by no means in the rear of 
the procession has come the work of the Oratorical and Debating Association. 
The method of choosing intercollegiate debaters has been revised, the record of 
the college in debate has been established by winning an intercollegiate debate 
from the University of Nebraska, and at the invitation of the State Oratorical 
Association, the college has again become a member of that body. 

The intercollegiate debate of '99 was held in Colorado Springs, on April 
28. The University of Nebraska supported the proposotion : "Resolved that the 
United States Should Annex the Philippines," and was represented by Messrs. P. 

B. Weaver, A. Bollenbach and W. F. McNaughton. Colorado College upheld the 
negative, being represented by Messrs. W. R. Armstrong, J. D. Clark and W. 

C. Browning. The judges — Dr. W. F. McDowell, Mr. Henry T. Rogers and 
Mr. Charles H. Stickney — gave their decision in favor of the negative. The 
members of the college team won their places by a preliminary debate in which 
the whole student body was allowed to compete. 

In 1897 the association became so dissatisfied with the system of judging 
the annual contest of the State Association, that it decided to withdraw from 
that body. Accordingly it did so, and established a local oratorical contest. In 
the spring of 1899 the State Association invited the college to send delegates to 
a special convention with the view of re-entering the association. Delegates 
were sent; the system of judging advocated by the college was accepted by the 
State Association, and the local association became a part of its membership. 

The association thus has a large field of work before it for the future. 
It will have a part in important debates, and important oratorical contests, 
and the work in both lines must be kept on a high plane if the college is to 
maintain a high position in these important lines of work.

Apollonian Ihistory. 

The Apollonian Club is the oldest of the literary societies of Colorado 
College, and is probably the oldest non-fraternal society in the State. It was 
on November 14th, 1890, that the Apollonian Club was formed, its birth-place 
being what was then the Library, but is now the North Room in Palmer Hall. 
The first officers of the club were, H. S. Murdock, President ; D. F. Matchett, 
Vice-President ; W. M. Swift, Secretary-Treasurer ; A. W. Kettle, Sergeant-at- 

Ever since its formation the Apollonian Club has been most active in all 
the life of Colorado College. It inaugurated the society banquet ; on May 15th, 
1891, according to the minutes, it was moved and carried that "the club hold a 
banquet at the Alamo Hotel." The consideration of this motion first brought 
the chaperon question prominently before the college public. 

In the spring of 1894, after the completion of the Coburn building and 
the removal of the Library thither, the Apollonian Club, Minerva and the 
Academy Society united in fitting up the North Room in Palmer as a Society 
Hall. On May nth the three societies, at a joint meeting, dedicated their new hall, 
and Minerva and Apollo continued to meet there until the spring of 1900. 

Debating at Colorado College owes its firm establishment almost entirely 
to the efforts of the Apollonian Club, having always been the most prominent 
feature of the regular programs. Public debating originated in 1897, when the 
club held its first prize debate. A second prize debate was held in 1898, and in 
1899 the Apollonian Club debated against the newly organized Pearsons Society, 
the youngster being victorious. Previous to this, in 1898, the Apollonian Club 
had inaugurated intercollegiate debating in Colorado by challenging the Uni- 
versity of Colorado to a debate. The challenge was contemptuously refused, so 
the club turned to the University of Nebraska. With this institution a debate 
was arranged, which took place in Colorado Springs, on April 22nd. The 
Apollonian debaters, Goodale, Holt and Thompson, acted as the representatives 
of the college as a whole. In the spring of 1900, as the old society hall had to lie 
used as a recitation room for the college, Apollo was obliged to seek new quarters. 
He went to work with his characteristic energy, and soon had collected from his 
disciples and friends the $500 which paid for the erection of the cozy little club 
house he now occupies. The possession of this house gives the Apollonian 
Club a permanent, individual meeting-room, and a place to which its members 
may resort at any time to have a little sociable loaf on the veranda, or to read 
or study at one of the tables by the fire-place. 

Moreover, it gives to the Apollonian Club the honor of having built the 
first club house, as well as of having established the literary society, the 
banquet, and the intercollegiate debate in Colorado College.

Minerva ibistory. 

In the fall of 1892, five young women, with the help of Miss Wickard, 
instructor in English, organized the Minerva Society. Its purpose, as defined 
by the charter members, was "to secure the union of logical thought and graceful 
language" in extemporaneous speaking on current events in the field of politics 
and letters. As the society has grown in numbers, and voting women who are 
interested in art and music have been admitted, its scope has been broadened, 
and an occasional afternoon has been devoted to some great artist or famous 
composer. Weekly meetings have been held, at first in any available class room, 
but for the last six years in Society Hall, which was furnished by the joint 
efforts of Minerva and Apollonian. This is a true home for Minerva, and no spot 
on the campus has more pleasant associations than Society Hall. 

The membership is limited to thirty-five, and the programs are arranged 
by a committee in such a way that each member takes part once in six weeks. 
The programs are not unlike those of other literary and debating societies. 

While the chief aim of the society is development along intellectual lines, 
a pleasant social life has gradually grown up. During the year, there are sev- 
eral farces and an informal dance for the new girls. In this way the incoming 
students catch a glimpse of the lighter side of Minerva, and lose their fear of 
the dread initiation and of the hard work that follows. There are a number 
of informal frolics, varying in nature from a Roman feast to a darky ball. 
Whatever the form of amusement, the 10 o'clock gong rings all too soon. The 
most formal event of the year is the anniversary held in December, at Ticknor 
Hall, to which the young men and a few members of the Faculty are invited. 
The form of entertainment differs from time to time. At the last function, de- 
lightful music was given by some friends of the college. This was followed 
by a progressive dinner in the study room, which was made attractive by appro- 
priate decorations. Minervans show their appreciation of the Senior girls by 
gifts to each one, and by a picnic in the canon just before Commencement. 
Here a prophecy is read, in which Minerva shows each devotee how the sister 
Graces have wound her life cord. 

So Minerva life is varied. The weekly meetings, which receive their 
stimulous from the class room, in turn arouse an interest on the part of the mem- 
bers for special work in English, and make them realize that there is much in 
the world outside their campus and their text books. The social life strengthens 
college friendships, and gives a definiteness of aim to recreation. The pin, a 
circle inclosing an M, symbolizes the tie which binds together all members. 
"Once a Minervan, always a Minervan."

Motto: "Unity and Push." 

The founding- of this society was a forward step in the development 
of the college. It came into existence because of a great need that had to be 
satisfied. There was but one young men's society for literary work in the col- 
lege, while there were many fellows, more than it could accommodate, desirous 
of doing literary work. As the first step in organization, a few men met in 
secret and talked the matter over ; but gradually more were taken into the circle, 
until finally, definite plans were laid, and on March 3rd, 1898, the society 
was founded with a membership of fifteen. 

It was not until the friends of the society began to despair of its ever 
having a name — not until it had been dubbed the "Nameless" — that, after heated 
discussions, the name "Pearsons" was chosen in honor of him who had so 
generously endowed the college the year before. 

The first place of meeting was in the Kindergarten, on the southeast 
corner of the campus, as there was no available place in the college buildings. 
Friday evening was decided upon as the time of meetings. The society 
remained in its first quarters until the opening of school in the fall of 1899, 
when it moved into the college chapel , then in the basement of the Coburn 
Library. After the Perkins Fine Arts Hall was erected, the large room on the 
second floor was secured for society meetings, and appropriately dedicated on 
February 24th, 1900. 

Following the custom of the older societies, Pearsons could not end the 
first school year without a spread; so it was voted that each member should 
pay twenty-five cents, and that the money should be refunded when the treas- 
urer, who was then living on the summit of I 'ike's Peak, descended to the com- 
mon level. The assessment having been paid, the members went in a body to 
Gough's Bakery, where they banqueted on pie. 

On January 20th, 1899, Pearsons won the inter-society debate with the 
Apollonian Club, thereby proving itself a worthy rival of the older society. In 
less than one vear from its birth it stood without a superior in Colorado College, 
which was more than even its most ardent supporters had dared hope. 

The first anniversary of the society was celebrated by a banquet at the 
Alta Vista Hotel. Just as the ginger champagne sparkled with CO;,, so the 
toasts sparkled with wit and humor. In order that the joy of the evening might 
be complete, some of the ladies favored Pearsons with their presence. 

It might also be mentioned that in the intercollegiate debate with the 
University of Nebraska, on April 28th, 1899, two of the debaters were Pearsons 


As to the work of the society, debate is the principal feature ; almost 
every program has a musical number upon it. Attention is also given to ora- 
tions, essays, extempore speaking, and parliamentary drill. 

At the opening of school in the fall, a reception is given to college men. 
Various receptions and spreads, to which guests have been invited, have added 
greatly to the social growth of the society. 

The wonderful progress of the society may be traced to many sources. 
The chief ones are : Lively programs, adherence to the motto, sociability, 
equality, brotherly love, and lastly, hardwork. These qualities are combined in 
one term, Pearsons Spirit. 

To those thinking of membership : We have a fair share of the foot-ball 
and base-ball players, glee-club men, ladies' men, and book worms. There are 
also among our number, sprinters, poets and mule-drivers, while every member 
is a skilled boxer. You will find us ever ready to initiate good movements and 
sx>od men.

Contemporary ftistory. 

For a considerable length of time there has been a growing need of a 
new literary society for young ladies. Until this year the matter had not been 
taken up, but as the need increased and the college became larger, the 
forming of the society seemed inevitable, and the young ladies set immediately 
to work. The result was the Contemporary, a club which takes up literary 
work in two ways. 

One of the lines of work decided upon was that of Current Literature, 
consisting of reviews of the latest books, character sketches from these books, 
and general discussions of them. The other line of work is of a more serious 
nature. The club decided to organize itself into an English House of Com- 
mons for practice in political work and the discussion of current events. All 
\the work is carried on according to Parliamentary Law. The meetings, which 
continue through one hour, are held once a week, and the two different methods 
of working" alternate.

Iksperian Ibistory. 

In the long time ago, a number of the academy students were in the habit 
of amusing themselves on Friday nights by annoying the Apollonian Society in 
their weekly meetings. This went on for some time, but one evening, when the 
boys had been carrying their fun a little too far, a number of the fleetest of 
the Apollonians came out, gave chase, and finally succeeded in catching one 
of the unfortunate offenders. It is useless to shock you by relating the dread- 
ful punishment to which he was subjected. It is enough to say that the ordeal 
which he underwent left a lasting impression on his youthful mind. 

The news of this affair having reached the ears of President Slocum, he 
called a special meeting of the boys of the academy, to be held in the Hager- 
man Hall reading room. To this meeting there came a large number of pretty 
badly scared fellows, as they expected what they no doubt deserved — a severe 
ethical talk. To their great surprise he greeted them in the most cordial man- 
ner, and, in the little talk he gave them, suggested that it would be a great 
benefit to them to organize an academy literary society. The boys took readily 
to the idea, and accordingly called a meeting to make arrangements for organ- 

After the necessary preliminary work the society was formed, Donald 
Gregg being elected as first President. The first regular meeting was held on

January 15th, 1897. The following- are the charter members of the society: 
Donald Gregg, Ray M. Dickinson, Roscoe Holt, Ralph A. Kiteley, Edgar S. 
Wilson, Horace H. Emerich, Harold H. Sanderson, B. Merril Holt, Francis R. 
Harrington, Frank H. Gleason, Willet R. Willis, Milton Ingraham, Harry H. 
Brown and Benjamin Griffith. Of these the only one remaining in the society 
is Willet R. Willis, but many of the old members are now in the college and 
are members of societies there. 

The work of the society has been steadily progressing from the very 
beginning. In the spring of 1898 a debate was held with the Colorado Springs 
High School. It was won by the Hesperians. 

In the spring of 1899, as the members were unable to secure a debate 
witli any outside school, it was decided, in order to keep up interest in the 
society to hold a prize debate. It proved a great success, the participants prov- 
ing themselves a credit to their society. 

While the primary object of the society is practice in debating, yet, that 
the members may have a chance to develop their other faculties and to give 
variety to the programs, special programs have been given in which original 
stories, poems and other special features have been introduced. There have 
also been held two mock trials which have proved quite successful. 

This year the society has been fortunate enough to secure Prof. Patti- 
son for a critic. 

Interscholastic debates have recently been arranged for with the Central 
High School, of Pueblo, and with the Colorado Springs High School, to take 
place just as this publication goes to press.

Since the Ciceronian Society disbanded, there has been no literary asso- 
ciation for academy girls. Although the young women of Cutler Academy 
realized the need of one, they were slow in organizing such a society ; but at 
last a number of them determined to raise the standard of academy life, and 
so, early in the fall of 1899, they met and organized the Philo. 

The society has a membership of twenty-four ; nineteen active and five 
associate members. The aim of the society is best stated in the preamble of 
the Constitution : 

"We, the undersigned young women of Cutler Academy, aiming to secure 
a knowledge of music, literature and art, and to secure proficiency in general 
discourse, do establish this constitution." 

The programs consist of musical selections, biographies, stories, papers 
on various subjects, and debates. Two committees have been appointed to carry 
on the work : a Program Committee, which has charge of all business, and an 
Invitation Committee. The motto — "Plus Ultra" — is characteristic of the spirit 
which animates the whole society.

V- /TO. C. &. Ihistory. 

The first organization of young men of Colorado College for Christian 
work was effected on October 13th, 1889. Previous to that time there had 
been a college prayer circle for professors, students and friends, both men and 
women, which held weekly meetings. ( )n this date a few young men of the college 
got together and undertook the organization of a College Y. M. C. A., which 
was completed at the formal opening meeting held in the chapel room in Palmer 
J rail, on November 17th, when Rev. Montague, of the Baptist Church, gave an 
address. Regular meetings have been held from that time on. The officers 
were: President, P. M. Mead; Vice-President, J. B. Kettle; Secretary, I. H. 
Robbins ; Treasurer, T. M. Howells ; and the list of members contain such names 
as those of F. R. Hastings, C. R. Arnold, Wilmer Culver, and Geo. H. De La 

During the ten years of its life, the association has grown steadily in 
numbers, spirit and influence. In all that time it has kept in close touch with 
the fnternational Association, both through personal correspondence and by 
delegates sent to the Northfield, Mass., and Lake Geneva, Wis., summer con- 
ferences. The objects of the association, as expressed in its constitution, and 
kept constantly in view as the goal of its efforts, have been "the development of 
Christian character among its members," and the fostering of "a healthful 
religious life throughout the college." To this end, aside from the regular 
weekly prayer meetings, interest in Bible and Mission Study has been stimu- 
lated and opportunity given for healthful outside work in the missions and 
churches of the city. 

The work of the past year has been along the lines pursued in previous 
years, and has been successfully carried out in almost every particular. In the 
fall, helpful service was rendered to the new students in many ways. They were 
met at the trains ; were given receptions, that they might become acquainted 
with both old and new men; and in other ways were made to feel at home in 
their new surroundings. 

The work of the Bible Study Committee was presented at one of the 
first meetings of the year. Three classes were organized and a thorough can- 
vass of the men was made, with the result that about twenty men have taken 
the work throughout the year, studying either the Life of Christ, the Life and 
Work of St. Paul, or Old Testament Characters. 

The Missionary Committee was also given a hearing at one of the early 
meetings, and, in connection with the Volunteer Band, has conducted a class 
for regular study of missions. The Membership and Finance Committees have 


done good work in canvassing for members and subscriptions. There have been 
this year, forty-five active and seven associate members ; and the budget cover- 
ing the total expense of the association for the year, amounted to $150.00. 

The Religious Meeting Committtee has furnished leaders for the evening 
prayer meetings in Hagerman Hall, and for the regular weekly meetings on 
Sunday afternoons. It has also provided for a number of outside speakers, 
among them Dr. Lancaster, Rev. R. T. Cross, D. D., of York, Neb. , and Dr. Tyler, 
of the Christian Church of this city. It arranged with the Y. W. C. A. to have 
Dr. P.ayley, of Denver, conduct the preparatory services for the Day of Prayer 
for colleges. 

The Outside Work Committee has made itself felt by helpful service 
rendered in the Spruce Street, Huerfano, and Hillside Missions, at the Printers' 
Home, and elsewhere. 

The association, everything considered, has been successful in its work 
for the year ; but there is room for vast improvement and advance in every 
line. The potential power and influence of this body of Christian young men 
on the college life and town life, cannot be estimated; and it is with earnest 
prayers for the guidance and spirit of God for the association next year, that 
those who have had the work in charge this year turn over the responsibilities 
and privileges of their positions to new hands.

V- W. C. a. Ihistory. 

The Young Woman's Christian Association is one of the oldest of the 
student organizations of Colorado College. In 1888, Miss Eloise Wickard, at 
that time instructor in English, called many of the college and academy girls 
together, and with her help they organized the association. There were about 
twenty charter members. The meetings were held in Society Hall until that 
room became the college Library ; in the Museum, so long as it was used for 
chapel purposes; and in Montgomery Hall until the erection <d Ticknor Hall in 
1897 gave it a permanent home in the study room there. 

As there were very few ycung women in college in 1888 and 1889. the 
majority of the Y. W. C. A. members were academy girls, and they found it 
difficult to maintain interest in the association. Had it not been for Miss 
Wickard's efforts, the organization would not have lived one year. 

When Miss Elizabeth Wilson, a traveling secretary for the International 
Y. W. C. A. ( as the American association was then called ) , visited the college, 
she found a number of girls deeply interested in the association, but not know- 
ing how to plan and carry on the work. They received her with enthusiasm, 
and she remained with them long enough to freshen the religious life and to 
give the weak organization a firm business foundation. Miss Wilson persuaded 
them to join the International Association, and to accept their constitution, pro- 
viding for officers to be elected annually, standing committees and regular cabinet 
meetings of the officers, and the chairmen of committees. 

The real growth of the association dates from this time — the spring of 
1892. In the next few years delegates were sent to the yearly state conven- 
tions and to the summer conferences at Northfield, Massachusetts, and Lake 
Geneva, Wisconsin. The membership increased ; the weekly devotional meetings 
became more interesting and helpful ; active missionary work was done ; and 
Bible classes were organized. 

This year, the Y. W. C. A. has made a marked advance in every way ; 
the membership has almost doubled ; the Bible and Mission Study classes 
have many more members than in any previous year ; the devotional meetings 
held on Sunday afternoons have been full of interest and have been very well 
attended. In missionary work the association is unusually strong ; three of its 
members are Student Volunteers ; it supports a worker, Miss Anna Wood, in 
the Inland China Mission, and each year sends a Christmas box to some mis- 
sion school in New Mexico. The Y. W. C. A. is also strong financially, 
rigidly observing the by-law, "This association shall contract no debt," yet able 
to send delegates to all important conventions, and to do not a little missionary 
work in the city. 

But the most important work the association has to perform, the purpose 
for which it exists, is that of strengthening the spiritual life of each of its mem- 
bers, of fulfilling "as to the Lord and not unto men" its clearly defined aim : 
"the development of Christian character in its members, and the prosecution 
of active Christian work, particularly among the young women of this institution."

One of the most important branches of work carried on by the Christian 
associations is that of the Volunteer Band. At various times in the history of 
our associations some of their members have become especially interested in 
missions, and led on by their love for this great work and their desire to assist 
personally in it, they have become volunteers and signed the declaration card, 
which says, "It is my purpose, if God permit, to become a foreign missionary." 

With this object in view, the volunteers have banded themselves together 
for mutual helpfulness and for stimulating as much interest as possible in mis- 
sions. This result is accomplished by meetings among Band members, and among 
the churches and Endeavor societies, together with occasional meetings with 
the two associations. 

The first Volunteer Band of Colorado College was organized February 22, 
1895, with six members. Since that time the membership and interest have grad- 
ually increased. In the year 1897-1898 the Band had thirteen members. The 
total number since organization has been twenty-five. Some of these are now 
in other institutions — medical schools and theological seminaries — completing the 
preparation for their work. Three, Miss Gillett, Miss DeBusk and Miss Tiffany, 
are now engaged in active home mission work, preparatory to entering the 
foreign field. 

The Band acts as one branch of the Missionary Committee of the associa- 
tions. The regular weekly meetings are held on Saturday nights. Although 
missionary topics are discussed, and plans for better work here in college and 
on the foreign field are considered, yet these meetings are pre-eminently meet- 
ings of prayer. The help and inspiration derived from them cannot be estimated. 

The members of the Band stand ready to help in the different churches 
and Endeavor societies of the city. Numerous meetings have been held through- 
out the city in nearly every church ; and this year we have a prospect for work 
far exceeding that of all other years. 

The Band of 1899-1900 is composed of nine members, with two com- 
mittees : the Band Meetings Committee and the Outside Work Committee.

Early in October, 1897, a few of the musical men of the col- 
lege posted a notice asking all who were interested in forming a 
glee club to assemble in the Chapel room. Richard Lamson, '98, 
a member of the Amherst Club for two years, was the prime 
mover ; he tested the voices, was elected president of the organ- 
ization, and conducted the rehearsals for a few weeks, until Pro- 
fessor Bowers, of the Conservatory, was secured. Under Air. 
Bowers' able and energetic leadership, the club rounded rapidly into form ; 
elected C. S. Hull, a former member of the Oberlin Glee Club, business man- 
ager; and began to plan definitely to make a concert tour of the 
State in the spring vacation. Through the untiring efforts of Busi- 
ness Manager Hull, the trip was arranged and a private car secured; 
and on April 5th, after a few local appearances, the boys left for Wal- 
senburg, where the first concert was given. The trip was successful in 
every particular, and a delightful reception at the home of Mrs. Howbert, in 
this city, closed the season's work very pleasantly. 

The '98-99 Club organized and settled down to hard work earlier than 
its predecessor. Under the management of A. W. McHendrie, '00, the club took 
a Christmas trip through the western part of the State, The best part of this 
trip was the magnificent scenery along the line of both roads — the Grand Canon, 
Marshall Pass, the Gunnison Valley and Hagerman Pass, with the Peniten- 
tiary at Canon City, the mines of Aspen and Leadville, and the Reform School 
at Buena Vista, as points of interest. The trip was successful, musically and 
financially, as before. 


During" the Easter vacation the cluh took an enjoyable and successful trip 
with Nowels, 'oo, as manager. Although it covered some old territory, people 
were as glad to see and hear the boys as ever. In the home town they sang to 
a big and enthusiastic house ; and to wind up the season pleasantly, gave a banquet 
to their ladies at the Alta Vista in May. 

This year's club, 'oaj-'oo, was organized as usual, early in the season , 
Hamlin, '02, was elected manager in the early spring. He succeeded in 
arranging an extensive tour through the western and southern parts of the 
State, with a dip into New Mexico, upon which the boys are starting as 
the Annual goes to press. If everything turns out as planned, the trip will 
be the longest, and will cover the most delightful scenery, of any in the history 
of the organization. It includes Florence, Canon City, Salida, Montrose, Ouray, 
Telluride, Durango, Silverton, Antonito, Santa Fe, Alamosa, Creede, Del Norte, 
Pueblo, Golden, Colorado Springs and Denver. 

The success of the club, since its first organization, has been complete 
and unbroken. One reason for this is found in the fact that the concert pro- 
grams have always been of a sufficient variety and merit to please every audience, 
without exception, before which the club has appeared. First and most im- 
portant of all, the club has always sung good music, and thanks to Professor 
Bowers, has sung it well. To avoid being tedious, it has also had in its reper- 
toire a sufficient number of the jolly songs peculiar to college life. The Mandolin 
Club, organized this spring, has proved a very valuable addition, and by enliven- 
ing the program with its dashy, well-played marches and two-steps, has taken a 
great burden from the shoulders of the (dee Club. Nowels, the inimitable, 
has captured the audiences everywhere. Newell and Moore, as soloists, Lyman, 
as the star mandolin player, and Shantz, with his euphonium, have aided ma- 
terially in making up a diversified and pleasing program. 

One important feature of the club's work has been its self-sufficiencv in 
financial matters. The club of '97 and '98 not only paid all expenses, but each 
left a balance with which to start the succeding cluh. 

As an advertising medium, the Glee Club has proved itself of first-rate 
importance : probably no other one thing has done so much in bringing Colorado 
College to the favorable notice of the people of this State and section. One 
of the ideals kept constantly in mind by the men, when out on their trips, has 
been : to be gentlemen always, and to have themselves recognized as such ; to 
ask no quarter on the ground that they are "just college boys," as Glee Club 
men have a reputation for doing. In this they have succeeded admirably ; and 
in the best homes in the best towns of Colorado, where they have been enter- 
tained, they have always left behind them an impression most favorable to them- 
selves and to the college from which they came.

The Young Ladies' Glee Club of Colorado College is a comparatively 
young organization, being now in the second year of its existence. From time 
to time in previous years efforts had been made to form a glee club among the 
girls in college, but from lack of interest, or other reasons, none of those attempts 
were successful. Consequently, when reports of a new organization began to 
be heard about the campus at the opening of college in the fall of '98, consider- 
able interest was shown, and various opinions expressed as to its probable out- 

In October of '98, the Glee Club was organized, and under the leadership 
of Miss Marguerite Bowers, carried on a successful year's work. Shortly after- 
wards a mandolin club also was formed in connection with the Glee Club, and this 
contributed no small amount towards making the season a successful one. 

On March 24th, 1899, the two clubs gave their first concert in the Con- 
gregational Church. An excellent program was prepared and given in a most 
pleasing and satisfactory way. The concert was a distinct success, and the girls 
felt well repaid for their work. The club sang during the year at several enter- 
tainments given at the college, and established an enviable reputation for itself. 

When the students came together again in the fall, the former members 
were waiting to take up the work again, and many new girls were anxious to 
get a place on the club if possible. The sad fact revealed itself, when the club 
assembled, that only five of the old girls were back this year. This fact 
encouraged the new aspirants, as there were eleven vacancies to fill. About 
forty girls came with fear and trembling to go through the ordeal of "trying" 
their voices. The fortunate eleven were chosen and the work began. Two 
rehearsals a week were held during the year, and very good work was done.

No one is admitted to membership in this club who was not born either 
in the Objective or Accusative case. Only those born in both cases are eligible 
to office. 

It is the purpose of this club to kick upon any and all occasions, in any 
and all ways, at any and all things. When there are no others to kick, the mem- 
bers practice on each other. 

The club motto is: "Kiconia est Kicinna ;" which being interpreted is, 
"Kick till you kick out." 

The symbol is a kangaroo kicking the kinks out of a coyote. 

Occasionally they kick a stone wall and get hurt, but a kicker with a sore 
toe, or a sore head, is a martyr and saint. 

The club is in a flourishing condition — flourishing its hands in wrath 
at everything that does, or does not take place. 

All students and professors are eligible to membership, except those who, 
having lost one or both legs, cannot kick. 

This, a worthy institution, is at present alive and kicking, and deserves 
treatment according to its own precepts. 

Long may it kick ! !

"Perkins Fine Arts Hall" not only fulfills a present 
need, but anticipates the larger demands made by an in- 
crease in educational activity. It is an earnest of those 
lines of study which will broaden and enrich the 
curriculum of Colorado College. In his dedicatory ad- 
dress, President Wheeler, of Berkeley, discussed the ten- 
dencies in modern education, building his theories and 
basing his arguments on scholastic history, and reaching 
forward in prophecy to future conditions and require- 
ments, emphasizing always the dependence of the new 
upon the old. 

What could be more fitting than that a real Greek 
play should be a feature in the Dedication Exercises ? 
Presented entirely by students, given in classical Greek, 
it had a peculiar significance on this occasion. The giv- 
ing of Greek plays by college students is a custom 
which dates far back in history, when Latin and Greek 
were the languages of scholars. To find the same cus- 
tom prevailing in modern times indicates that scholars, 
though now far removed from ancient forms, still rec- 
ognize and acknowledge the importance of the classics. 
The presentation of "The Return of Odysseus" was 
an ambitious undertaking, and was accomplished only 
after earnest effort on the part of every one engaged in 
it. The lines were taken from Homer's Odyssey, such 
being chosen as relate to the home-coming of the hero. 
The individual parts which require the learning of these 
Greek lines, were admirably given. But the most endur- 
ing impressions, and those which most completely took 
the spectator back to antiquity, were due to the con- 
certed work in the Hymn of Apollo ; the dancing of Nau- 
sicaa and her maidens ; and the games and dances before 
Odysseus and King Alcinous. 

Greek words and music of a hymn to Apollo, dis- 
covered at Delphi in 1893, were chanted by the actors 
as they advanced to the altar and offered sacrifices, ac- 
cording to ancient custom. 

The second scene of especial interest showed Nau- 
sicaa and her maidens playing a lively game of ball. 
Here again, classic music aided the imagination in pictur- 
ing ancient times. 


After Odysseus had been welcomed to the home of King Alcinous, the 
young men of the court entertained him with games of manly prowess. The 
effect here was so realistic, so true to all preconceived ideas of Greek games, that 
in this scene lay the greatest success of the play.

There were three prominent factors, which, ahove everything else, brought 
victory and the intercollegiate championship to the Colorado College Base Ball 
Team of '99. First : the inspiration given to the team by Coach Clarke ; second : 
bard practice throughout the season; third: the ability to play an up-hill game. 

Clarke's qualities as a ball player, and bis knack of getting all the work 
possible out of the men, hardly need comment. Suffice it to say, that when 
Clarke was on the field, a rattling good practice was always assured, and when 
lie was absent, it was too often the other way. 

ddie team worked harder than any base-ball team Colorado College has ever 
had. Long and hard practice was the rule ; and there was always present a 
spirit of earnestness which permitted no shirking. 

The ability of the team to play an up-hill game was a quality which no 
athletic team of Colorado College bad hitherto shown to any marked extent. 
From being third in the race for the championship earl}" in the season, the team 
finished strong by easily defeating S. S. M., U. of C, and D. U., at Golden, 
Boulder and Denver respectively. 

When Captain McFIendrie called the players together for preliminary 
practice, there were only four men of the '98 championship team present; the 
three outfielders and the first baseman. However, the men worked hard and 
won the first three games easily. Then S. S. M. was found to be the "real 
tiling," and defeated us badly. Here it was that everyone realized that there 
must be a big brace. So the team started out by playing a tie game with U. of 
C, and defeating the strong team from Fort Logan on the home grounds. 
The ne*xt three games were to be played away from home, and against teams 
of which, one bad tied Colorado College, one had defeated her badly, and the 
last (D. U.) was first in the championship race. But the team was equal to the 
emergency, came out with riving colors, and won the Championship Cup' pre- 
sented by tbe Intercollegiate Athletic Association. 

The fielding was excellent throughout the season, two or three errors 
1 icing what was usually charged up against the team. The fact that four men had a 
percentage of 400 or over in batting, showed what kind of "stick" work the men 
were doing. 

To sum up, it may be said that it was one of the most remarkable season.-., 
and one of the most successful teams that Colorado College has ever had.

The Colorado College Foot Ball Team of '99, intercollegiate champions 
of Colorado, was undoubtedly the best team the college ever put in the field. 
Many of last year's team were again wearing the tiger stripes, and some of the 
new material was excellent. With a good coach, and with the experience of the 
old men, the game very naturally was an improvement over that of last year. 
Better team work, quicker and fiercer attack, and more scientific defense char- 
acterized the work. 

A brief personal mention of the men who have contributed to our success 
may not lie out of place. Coach John D. Clarke comes in for a large share of 
credit for his hard, faithful and conscientious work with the team. He possesses 
two qualities very essential to a good coach — the power of exciting and 
holding the respect and admiration of the men, and that sort of enthusiasm 
over his work which is contagious and inspiring. 

Captain Ben. Griffith, '01, 
was an important factor in 
the season's success. As a 
player, he proved himself 
one of the most hard work- 
ing and aggressive mem- 
bers of the team ; he is al- 
ways in the game, seldom 
down with an injury, ami 
is a terror to his opponent, 
both in offence and defense. 
He played left tackle. As 
captain, he encouraged and 
inspired his men to do their 
best; and his unanimous election as captain for the team of '00, shows the con- 
fidence they felt in him. With his added experience he will undoubtedly add 
new laurels to those that already crown his flaxen locks. 

Browning, '00, quarter-back, played his fourth year in that position last 
fall. He was Captain in '97 and '98. Although the most diminutive man on 
the team, he always makes himself felt ; he is fast, a sure tackier, a sure passer 
and always plays a cool-headed game. Floyd, '00, right tackle, another veteran 
in the service, is generally conceded to be one of the best tackles in the State. 
His defensive work is fine ; and through holes of his manufacture our best and 
surest gains were made. Cooley, '00, left half, played a brilliant game this year ; 
he is a consistent ground-gainer, a hard line plunger, and is especially strong on 
defense. Caldwell, '00, right end, has the reputation of being the fiercest player 
on the team. He is a strong defensive end, a fast running back, a sure, hard 
tackier, and a speedy man on punts. Packard, '02, full-back, carried off the 


honors of the State for that position. He has a way of ramming his lanky form 
through the line with terrific force ; and as a punter, out-classes any other man 
on the Colorado gridiron. Jonson, '03, right half, made long gains as a run- 
ning half, and bucked the line well. But he made his reputation as a place- 
kicker. Against every team that Colorado College met this year he scored a 
Princeton. Forty-two yards was his longest distance. "Chilly" Frost, '02, 
center, is steady and accurate in passing, and on defense, his breaking through 
and tackling is a source of terror to his opponents. Herr, Special, played left end 
when not injured. His work was brilliant ; fast and sure on punts, absolutely re- 
liable on defense. Pardee, '01, left guard, played his first year with the Tigers 
last fall. His work showed marked and consistent improvement through the sea- 
son, and he finished with a 
fine record. Houk, '03, 
played left end when Herr 
was injured. His work 
was very good, especially 
on the defensive. Lamson, 
right guard, was the only 
academy man. His work 
was splendid ; strong on of- 
fense, and a whirlwind on 
defense. There was no 
steadier or surer player on 
the team. Among the sub- 
stitutes who did good work 
are D. G. Rice, Moore, Drysdale and Hoyne. 

The championship of '99 is the culmination of a remarkable improve- 
ment in the team during the last four years. In those old days our delicate 
little heroes shivered onto the field, knees beating tattoo, to submit almost with- 
out a murmur to slaughter. 

"Theirs not to reason why, 
Theirs not to do, but die." 

The question was never one of winning, but one of keeping down the 
opponent's score, and of scoring, if possible, on a fluke. He who suggested 
possible victory was derided ; he who thought victory probable was a heretic ; and 
so of course expecting defeat, our team invariably got it worse than they had 
expected. In '96 Boulder simply crushed our tender little team with a score 
of 50 to o. In '98 Boulder went down to defeat with 22 to o ringing in her 
horrified ears. Boulder was unprepared for that surprise ; but in '99, measur- 
ing well the strength of her enemy, yet confident in her own strength, Boulder 
fell, fighting bravely to the end a hopeless battle, dying with her face to the foe. 


Score: C. C, 17; S. U., 5. Golden, hitherto invincible, or else protected by a 
magic charm, was routed on Thanksgiving Day by a score of 17 to o. 

Four years ago at the very bottom ; to-day at the top. This record may 
not seem remarkable ; yet when one considers that, with less than one hundred 
men in all to choose from, we have risen from the High School class to that 
of the best, one must confess that this is marvelous. How has it come about? 
The explanation is found in the great and effective development of the kicking 
game, in the variety in our style of play, and most of all, in the growth of that 
splendid "Tiger Spirit" that has enabled us to hold so magnificently the terrific 
attacks of the Boulder tandem; that spirit never says die; that spirit 
fights the battle through from whistle to whistle; that spirit inspires men 
to say, "I can if I will, and I will." Faithful work, hard work, self-sacrificing 
work, and a firm devotion to the belief that spirit and determination are half 
the battle, have done for Colorado College what nothing else could have done. 
Fighting up hill, struggling against almost overwhelming odds, this spirit has 
finally conquered. Colorado College will remain at the head just so long as 
that "Tiger Spirit" lives.

Since the gown element has been so decidely driven out of the "Town 
and Gown Golf Club" by the Town element, Colorado College has been jvithout 
that necessary part of college life — a golf club. A short time ago the golf fever 
ran so high that a few meetings of "those interested in golf" resulted in a well 
organized club. 

The mesa is an ideal locality for golf links, and it is here that the club 
has laid out its course. The first tee is but a short walk from the college 
and a delightful place for the club house, which the ambitious club expects to 
have before many years. 

The club is already quite large, being composed of about thirty-five mem- 
bers, and is continually increasing. 

With such an enthusiastic start, and with the large number of golfers 
wlio have joined, the club promises to become one of the most popular of our 
college organizations.

"Hello, Carroll." 

"Hel-lo, Maxwell, old boy. Delighted to see you're back. When did — 
( )b, turn around, you freak. Great Scott! I feel like bow-stringing every body 
that plays that bewhiskered old joke on me. You're the 'steenth fellow that's 
done it this morning, too. Still, its just like you. Runs in the family, too, don't 
it? You came from a family of chuckle-heads, I'll bet. Hope you'll never 
bring any of 'em down. One's enough." 

"I'm awful sorry," said Maxwell, trying to assume an injured look, but 
with a lurking smile playing about his mouth, "especially as" — here he turned 
and disclosed a youth who had been following him — "this is my cousin, Fred 
Smith, who will be a Freshman here this year." This with a malicious little 
emphasis on the word cousin. 

"Er-hum," coughed Carroll in some confusion, and flushing, "glad - 
er - glad to have you meet me, Mr. Smith. Fr - hum, come in and sit down." 

They came in. Smith took possession of the chair which Carroll indicated 
to him with a wave of bis hand, and Maxwell flung himself upon the bed. 
Carroll seated himself in another chair and tilted back in it. 

An awkward silence followed. Carroll had not yet recovered from the 
embarrassment consequent upon his unfortunate remark, and he was casting 
about in his mind for a suitable apology for it. Smith would willingly have 
assisted him, but he didn't quite know how to begin, so he held his tongue, 
and contented himself with staring curiously at the pictures and trophies that 
adorned the walls of the room. Maxwell enjoyed the situation too much to 
relieve it. He lay back on the bed, watching with a smile Carroll's obvious dis- 
quietude. He noted that Carroll, in his embarrassment, had tilted back in his 
chair, until he was on the verge of capsizing backwards. The chance was too 
good to be lost. So he slyly stretched forth his leg, inserted his foot under 
the lower round, and gave a sudden twitch. By a convulsive spasm that doubled 
him up like a hinge, Carroll managed to keep from going over, but the chair 


clattered to the floor. Maxwell lay back on the heel, laughing and shielding 
his head with his hands, and Carroll stood over him. 

"You villain," exclaimed Carroll, laughing himself, but making threaten- 
ing motions with his hands, "at your old tricks again, hey? You're a dignified 
Soph, I don't think. If 1 wasn't a Senior, and a member of the floor committee 
into the bargain, I'd rough house you. You want to look out for him, Mr. 
Smith," he continued, addressing the new-comer, "he's a boh' terror." 

"Yes," said Maxwell dreamily, addressing the ceiling, "I belong to a 
family of chuckle-heads." 

Carroll broke the painful silence that ensued with the remark: "Seen 
the Dean yet?" 

"Nope," said Maxwell wearily, "that pleasure is in reserve." 

A long pause, then a desperate plunge by Carroll : "We had great larks 
with the Dean two years ago, if you would like to hear it." 

"Well, fire away," said Maxwell, with the countenance of a martyr. 
"Since we've got the Dean to see, we might as well get into an appropriate state 
of mind." 

Thus encouraged, Carroll proceeded : "Two years ago, when I was a 
Soph, and before that thing." indicating Maxwell with a disdainful jerk of his 
thumb, "had hurt the institution by coming here, the regular Dean fell sick 
and had to take a vacation, and the faculty imported a substitute for the re- 
mainder of the year. The substitute was a little Englishman, but you would 
never have guessed his nationality if it hadn't been for the fact that he'd drop 
his h's when excited. He was pretty dudish, always had clothes in the latest 
fashion, and wore a tall, shiny stove-pipe that the fellows were itching to have 
a shy at." 

"Now, my room-mate that vear was Mark Carr, the most abandoned 
practical joker, I think, 1 ever met. I honestly believe he'd cheerfully forego 
the pleasure of attending the funeral of his dearest enemy to work a practical 
joke. He was a regular sly-boots ; about all he did was to think up deviltry, and 
he was forever getting into scrapes, and then getting out of them again by the 
skin of his teeth. 'Course, I never used to help him in any of his pranks, and 
I always tried to dissuade him from them, when I knew about it before hand." 

The derisive snort with which Maxwell received this statement taxed 
the politeness of the visitor severely, but Carroll continued serenely: 

"Naturally, Mark didn't stand in good odor with any of the faculty, and 
he was the new Dean's pet abomination, because of a pernicious habit he had 
of invariably forgetting to use his h's when in that gentleman's presence. Once 
the Dean so far forgot himself as to start in to remonstrate with Mark about 
this, but be got so flustered and excited that, without knowing it, he began mur- 
dering h's himself, and about half the college was around enjoying the spectacle 


before he came to a realizing sense of himself. Mark nearly got fired for that, 
but he managed to get out of it somehow." 

"But the principal butt of Mark's jokes was a fellow named Vanrenen, 
who was a Special here that year. That fellow was one of the most conceited 
dudes I ever saw. He was a regular fop. He dressed in the swellest clothes, 
he carried a monstrous cane, his neckties were truly wonderful creations, and I 
don't think 1 ever saw him when it wasn't raining in London. When he con- 
descended to address you it was with an air of conscious superiority that was 
maddening. He used to go around with his mouth ajar and a look of expres- 
sionless vacancy upon his face. I suppose, however, that he himself would 
characterize it as aristocratic hauteur. Mark despised and hated this fellow- 
He used to call him a drooling idiot, and other endearing names of a similar 
nature, and he wasn't always careful to reserve his comments for behind his 
back. Still, I didn't wholly blame Mark. Because, you see, Mark took his 
best girl to a party during the first part of the year, and she met Vanrenen there 
and thought he was just too too for anything. She became quite infatuated 
with him, and he monopolized her for the whole evening. It was awfully 
funny, but Mark couldn't see the point. He'd stand and glower at them for a 
bit, and then he'd walk up and down the hall and rage; then he'd come back 
and glare some more. When the party broke up I had almost to use personal 
violence to keep him from assaulting Vanrenen. Naturally, this did not increase 
A/Jark's love for Vanrenen, and he swore he'd get even with him before the 
year was out. 

"Well, one day — it was in December, the last day before the Christmas 
holidays began — Mark was lazying on the bed, playing with Tommy, and 1 
was sweating blood over my Sophomore oration, and punctuating it with pious 
ejaculations. He — Oh, I didn't tell you who Tommy was, did I ? Why, Tom- 
my was an old, disreputable tom-cat that had 
been hanging about the Hall ever since it had 
been constructed, I guess. He's come to grief 
since, but he was in all his bloom then. He'd 
had all sorts of hair-breadth escapes from dogs 
and from expeditions out foraging for biological 
material, and he seemed to bear a charmed life. 
The fellows used to pet him a good deal, and 
they called him the college cat, because he was 
striped black and yellow — college colors, you 
see. They used to take him to the foot-ball 
— ■ t-'.-L games as a mascot, until one day he got into an 
argument with a brindled pup that the U. had brought along as their mascot. 
Tommy came out of the fray with flying colors, and the fellows were immensely 
delighted, especially as we won the game into the bargain. But Prexy was 


quite horrified, and he issued a ukase forbidding Tommy's presence on the foot- 
ball field any more, so his usefulness as a mascot ceased. Tommy was a pretty 
good cat on the whole, the only objection being that he was too garrulous at night." 
"Well, to come back to the subject, as I said, Mark was playing on the 
bed with Tommy, when all at once he got up, tucked him under his arm and 
left the room. I didn't pay much attention, because I was busy scribbling on 
that blamed oration. But Mark returned soon with such a broad grin on his 
face that I knew that he had played a joke on somebody. At first he wouldn't 
tell me what he had done, but finally he confessed that Vanrenen was going 

home that day, and that his 
three grips were standing al- 
ready packed in his room. He 
had watched until Vanrenen left 
the room, then he had gone in, 
dropped Tommy, the cat, into a 
black grip which contained Van- 
renen's dress suit and was stand- 
ing unlocked, and had closed the 
grip. Of course, I expostulated with Mark, and explained to him the iniquity 
of what he had done, and — " 

"( )h, yes," commented Maxwell, with an extravagance of inflection that 
provoked a laugh from Smith. 

"Dry up," exclaimed Carroll, emphasizing his remark with a sofa-pillow. 
"Where was I," he continued. "( >h, yes. 1 told him that the cat might 
smother in there ; but he said, trust Tommy to make his presence known if things 
didn't suit him. That was true, too, so I said no more. He. said he was go- 
ing down to the station, and he wanted me to come along and see the fun. I 
had to finish the oration, however, so he gave me his blessing and departed. 

"Well, about five minutes after, 1 happened to be down in the hallway, scrutin- 
izing the bulletin-board, when Vanrenen came down the stairs, nearly swamped 
under the burden of his three grips. He said he had forgotten something in his 
room, and he asked me to put his grips in the express wagon for him. I was 
accommodating. The express wagon came up then and I tossed the valises 
up to the expressmen, of which there were two. As 1 handed up the black 
valise I felt something moving in it. So then Vanrenen hadn't discovered 
Tommy yet. The express wagon drove off at a lively rate, and I could see the 
grips lurching and bounding about in the bottom like ships in a heavy swell. 
Now, 1 knew Tommy was too determined an old rascal to stand such treatment 
as that without a protest, and 1 didn't think it would be long before he'd rise 
to a point of order. Sure enough, just before the express wagon disappeared 
around the corner, I saw both men turn in their seats and stare back in the 
wagon. 1 had little doubts but that Tommy had begun to tune up, hut 1 had 


>no time to speculate, because just then out came Vanrenen, all dressed for 

"You've more luggage than usual, haven't you?" I said carelessly. 

"No, I hardly believe so," said he; hauling on his groves. "That black 
valise belongs to the Dean ; he's going as far as Kansas City with me, and as he 
was a good deal rushed this morning, he asked me to send it down with mine. 
Well, an revoir, till after the holidays." He climbed into the cab that had been 
waiting for him and drove awav. 

"Well, I fell up against a hitching post to catch my breath. Great 
Heavens, what a fix ! Mark had made a beef, and had put that outrageous old 
feline in the Dean's grip — in with his dress suit, too. And that dress suit was the 
apple of his eye. Well, I jumped on my bike as soon as I had sufficiently got 
my bearings again, and the way I annihilated space down to the railroad 
station was a caution. You could have played checkers on my coat tails all 
the way down. I found Mark leaning up against some trunks, and gloating 
fondly over Vanrenen, who had just arrived, and who was attitudinizing on the 
platform, with a complacent smirk upon his face. I threw a hurried glance 
around. Yes, the Dean was there, talking with some friends. I didn't have 
much breath left, but I managed to gasp out to Mark what I had found out 
at the Hall. He raised his eyebrows and whistled, then shrugged his shoulders 
and said, 'well, it couldn't be helped.' 'Nonsense,' I said, 'the express wagon 
hasn't come in yet, has it?' 'No.' 'Well, then,' 1 said, 'what's the matter with 
going back a bit and stopping the wagon, and taking the cat out?' 'No use,' 
he said, 'I haven't got the key to the valise, and anv way, its too late. Look 
there.' There, sure enough, was the express wagon coming down the street. 
So there was nothing to do but to let things take their course. The wagon 
drove up to the platform, and if I had had any doubts as to whether Tommy 
had spoken up during the transit, they would have been dispelled by the appear- 
ance of the expressmen. 

"How'd they look?" queried Maxwell, who was having a fit, to judge 
from the way the bed shook. 

"Oh, I can't describe them. They were reeling in the seat, and were so 
red in the face they looked as if they were going to have a fit of apoplexy. I 
could see they were keeping from laughing only by the most heroic efforts. 
The Dean tripped up and got his black valise, the expressman handing it to 
him as gingerly as if it were a keg of dynamite. The Dean walked away with 
it, and as he was passing us he happened to hit it against a trunk. Disastrous 
move. There issued from that bag a wail fit to make vour hair rise. The Dean 
stopped short, and looked askance at the grip in his hand, and naturally every- 
body else looked around in surprise. There was a second's silence, then clear 
and strong there came another caterwaul from the valise, louder than before. 
The Dean stood rooted to the spot, and his face flushed an ugly purple. The 


people round about began to swap glances, and there was considerable snigger- 
ing in the background. As for Mark, an expression of cherubic innocence and 
mild wonder was playing over bis face. Now 1 guess Tommy's nerves had been 
about fretted to fiddle-strings by his ride to the station; for now, finding bis 
plaintive appeals unanswered, he took to howling as if bis heart would break, 
and trying to scratch bis way out. You could bear the cloth rip in the satchel. 
The Dean turned all the colors of the rainbow now. It must have been agoniz- 
ing for him to listen to that dress suit going to rags and tatters under the claws 
of that furious cat, and if it hadn't been for such a large and appreciative 
audience, he would probably have said something appropriate to the occasion. 
About this time one of the expressmen couldn't bold in anv longer, and he burst 
out into a sort of convulsive snort, and that brought down the house. Laugh? 
You never heard anything like it. They roared and howled and slapped their 
thighs, and the tears rolled down their cheeks in rivulets. The fat old station 
master split his coat up the back in the middle of his ecstasies, and when the 
train came in it nearly ran down a couple of dozen or so who were wallowing 
on the platform, weak with mirth." 

"The Dean didn't take that train. No! He jumped into a cab and was 
driven back to the college in a furious rage. And he tried his level best, 
during the remainder of the school year, to find out who put that cat in his 
valise, but he never arrived. First, he tried to get the expressmen bounced, 
but they swore they knew nothing" about it. Then he suspected Vanrenen, and 
he made it exceedingly warm for him, but Vanrenen protested his innocence 
so strongly that the Dean was forced to believe. Then he was reduced to ran- 
sacking the college for likely culprits, and dragging them into his sanctum 
and interrogating them, until finallv one of the fellows he was exercising wrote 
home about it to his father, and his father sent a scorcher of a letter to Prexy. 
So Prexy interfered and made him quit. But he never got over it, and he 
was always suspecting you of laughing at him. He left the college at the 
end of the year and never returned. ( )n the whole, it was a good thing for 
Mark, too. Although the Dean didn't tackle him, strange to say. yet he got 
a pretty good scare, because if he had been found out he would have been 
bounced instanter. He quit practical joking from that day- Tommy? ( >h, 
he turned up two or three days after, a little the worse for wear, but still good 
enough for every-day use. But he never was friends with Mark again ; he used 
to skip out whenever he saw Mark coming." 

Maxwell sat up and wiped his streaming eyes. Then he looked at his 
watch. "Whew ! Half past eleven ! Come along, Fred. We'll have to hurry 
if we want to see the Dean. So long, Carroll." 

As they passed out Carroll whispered to Smith: "I beg your pardon 
for being so rude when you came in. 1 — I — " 

"That's all right," said Smith, laughing. 



First Prize Poem.- 


Bernard L. Rice, 'oi. 

Another clay is done ; 

And far and wide aeross onr vale 
The dying glory of the sun 

Shoots bars of silver, gold and pale, 
And purple-hued rich clouds enfold 

In royal garb the King of Day, 
And cross the glen and mountain old 

Huge shadows stretch and sweep away — 
And mount and shadow bring to me 

The sunset of a century. 

Another day is almost done ; 

Since broke the humble light of morn. 
When rose in mist the yellow sun. 

How grand his course has been ! High borne 
On wings of flame, a kingly way, 

Though darkened by the storm cloud's burst, 
Yet riding on through summer day 

He rests at last in gold immersed ; 
And evening glories bring to me 

The sunset of a century. 

A century is almost done, 

An eventide is drawing nigh ; 
The shadows of great deeds begun 

In by-gone days now cleaving high 
The vault of heaven, sweep afar, 

O'er land and wave, a nation wide, 
O'ercasting pygmy deeds of yore, 

Vast giants by their maker's side. 
O, can this master painting be 

The sunset of a century ? 


A century — a little day 

In all the great broad sweep of years 
That stretch into eternity: 

The morn was filled with blood and tears. 
The noon-tide felt the battle's heat. 

The evening hour crept on in pain, 
Still racked by ceaseless tramp of feet, 

Still mourning for the thousands slain. 
O, can this scene of carnage be 

The sunset of a century ? 

A hundred years of toil and pain, 

A hundred years of victory. 
Despite the lust for gathered gain, 

Despite the sin that bound the free. 
The soul of man that cycles slept 

Awoke, and grandly learned to plod. 
Laid hold the prize for manhood kept 

And held communion with his God. 
Can human frailness worthy be 

Of such a mighty century? 

A century is almost done ; 

Still rules the hand of Destiny, 
Still sweep the months and ages on 

To join the centuries to be. 
When twilight closes o'er the scene 

There rises from the hearts of men 
A prayer that night may intervene 

To rest and gird themselves again. 
Another morn is yet to be — 

The dawning: of a century. 




Ethel P. Van Wagenen, 'oi. 

"Oh, dear, what shall I do?" 

This exclamation, uttered in frenzied tones of despair, hurst from the 
throat of a tall, literary-looking college girl. She was sitting alone in her own 
room, and bent dejectedly over her desk, on which were scattered a great num- 
ber of papers, some carelessly written, others scratched over with angry look- 
ing pencil marks, and still others torn up and cast violently aside. With a 
loud groan the unhappy girl clutched her already disordered hair, and gave it 
a jerk with both hands, as if she thought to get an inspiration thereby. 

"How can they expect me to describe the 'sensations felt in a moment 
of imminent peril' when I have never felt them myself," she moaned. "Here 
I have been at it for three hours, and it still sounds as flat as a pancake. Why 

does Prof. make us write on such a foolish theme anyway?" Another 

convulsive jerk of the hair, and a moment of solemn deliberation ensued. Then 
she sprang up as if struck by a new idea, exclaiming resolutely : 

"I'll do it." 

She hurridly smoothed down her hair, put on a small cap and a red jacket 
which was hanging over the back of her chair. She hurried out of her room, 
ran through the long corridor, down the stairs and out into the open air. The 
recitation bell had just rung, and the students were passing from building to 
building across the campus, some laughing and chatting, others absorbed in 
their books. One or two girls looked curiously at the tall girl in the bright 
red jacket, who came out of Ticknor Hall, mounted a wheel and rode awav in 
great haste. They called after her to know where she was going, but she did 
not heed them. Her face bore an abstracted and serious expression. In half 
a minute she had disappeared around the corner, and was speeding northward 
along Cascade Avenue. The road was sandy and sprinkled with yellow autumn 
leaves that had been blown down by the continuous winds. A glorious deep 
blue sky and a fresh breeze added to the beauty of the morning, but our friend, 
regardless of it all, sped on. After riding several blocks she turned off Cas- 
cade and rode directly east. In a few minutes she had reached the border of 
the town. Ahead of her the gray prairie stretched out for several miles, and 


A century — a little day 

In all the great broad sweep of years 
That stretch into eternity: 

The morn was filled with blond and tears, 
Idle noon-tide felt the battle's heat. 

The evening hour crept on in pain, 
Still racked by ceaseless tramp of feet. 

Still mourning for the thousands slain. 
O, can this scene of carnage be 

The snnset of a century ? 

A hundred years of toil and pain, 

A hundred years of victory. 
Despite the lust for gathered gain, 

Despite the sin that bound the free, 
The soul of man that cycles slept 

Awoke, and grandly learned to plod, 
Laid hold the prize for manhood kept 

And held communion with his God. 
Can human frailness worthy be 

Of such a mighty century? 

A century is almost done ; 

Still rules the hand of Destiny, 
Still sweep the months and ages on 

To join the centuries to be. 
When twilight closes o'er the scene 

There rises from the hearts of men 
A prayer that night may intervene 

To rest and gird themselves again. 
Another morn is yet to be — 

The dawning of a century.

"Oh, dear, what shall I do?" 

This exclamation, uttered in frenzied tones of despair, hurst from the 
throat of a tall, literary-looking college girl. She was sitting alone in her own 
room, and bent dejectedly over her desk, on which were scattered a great num- 
ber of papers, some carelessly written, others scratched over with angry look- 
ing pencil marks, and still others torn up and cast violently aside. With a 
loud groan the unhappy girl clutched her already disordered hair, and gave it 
a jerk with both hands, as if she thought to get an inspiration thereby. 

"How can they expect me to describe the 'sensations felt in a moment 
of imminent peril' when I have never felt them myself," she moaned. "Here 
I have been at it for three hours, and it still sounds as flat as a pancake. Why 

does Prof. make us write on such a foolish theme anyway?" Another 

convulsive jerk of the hair, and a moment of solemn deliberation ensued. Then 
she sprang up as if struck by a new idea, exclaiming resolutely : 

"I'll do it." 

She hurridly smoothed down her hair, put on a small cap and a red jacket 
which was hanging over the back of her chair. She hurried out of her room, 
ran through the long corridor, down the stairs and out into the open air. The 
recitation bell had just rung, and the students were passing from building to 
building across the campus, some laughing and chatting, others absorbed in 
their books. One or two girls looked curiously at the tall girl in the bright 
red jacket, who came out of Ticknor Hall, mounted a wheel and rode away in 
great haste. Thev called after her to know where she was going, hut she did 
not heed them. Her face bore an abstracted and serious expression. In half 
a minute she had disappeared around the corner, and was speeding northward 
along Cascade Avenue. The road was sandy and sprinkled with yellow autumn 
leaves that had been blown down by the continuous winds. A glorious deep 
blue sky and a fresh breeze added to the beauty of the morning, but our friend, 
regardless of it all, sped on. After riding several blocks she turned off Cas- 
cade and rode directly east. In a few minutes she had reached the border of 
the town. Ahead of her the gray prairie stretched out for several miles, and 


sloped up gradually to a range of low. Hat hills, called Austin's Bluffs. A 
half an hour's hard riding brought her to the foot of these odd looking hills. 
The road turned and went around the base of the cliff. Just at the turning of 
the road there was a large red-stone house standing up there all alone in a 
lordly fashion. The girl, quite out of breath with the steep ascent, dismounted 
and stood admiring the large round tower and spacious porch of this country 
mansion. Behind it rose cliffs of white rock, streaked gray and yellow, and 
riddled with queer bullet-like holes, reminding one of the battered walls of an 
ancient fort. On turning toward the west, she had a view of the country for 
many miles. The prairie, a carpet of rich brown and yellow colors, sloped 
down to the town, which, partly hidden by a thin veil of smoke, extended west- 
ward to the mesas ; the latter formed a long straight line across the base of the 
mountains. Towering above all the hills was the old, bald Peak ; and down 
to the south was Cheyenne, the strange headless dragon, with his prickly back 
outlined against the sky, and his long tail curving far out on the plains. 

"How beautiful!" exclaimed the girl, and then added with a sigh, "But 
this is not lonely enough for my purpose." 

She mounted and rode on again. All signs of human life were grad- 
ually left behind. Some dark clouds at that moment passed across the sun 
and cast an ominous shadow over the cliffs, which seemed now to be fairly 
frowning down upon her. A chilly breeze blew into her face and made a 
moaning sound through the pine trees on the hillside. She shivered. "I ought 
to have some kind of an adventure here," she thought. "Robbers and people 
like that always haunt such places. Why, just the mere sight of a man would 
scare me stiff, I'm sure. I wish one would appear right now," she added, 
looking anxiously up and down the road. "It would be sure to give me the 
'sensations felt at the moment of imminent peril.' Then I would have the ma- 
terial for my theme, and could get on my wheel and ride away before the rob- 
ber got here.". 

A loud crackling noise broke out upon the still air. She jumped and 
turned around. In her eager search for danger she had overlooked a herd of 
cows that were quietly grazing near the road. At this instant she caught sight 
of a good sized bull pushing his way through the fence, which was already 
badly broken, and had several barbed wires trailing on the ground. 

"Oh, my red jacket!" exclaimed the girl in terror. She did not wait 
to analyze what the sensations she felt at that moment were. There was not 
even time to pull off the red jacket. 

"What shall I do?" she exclaimed. She cast a hasty glance about; a 
man, even a robber, would have been a welcome sight at that moment. There 
was 110 time to lose. She faced the wheel around homewards and started to 
mount. But her foot slipped off the pedal and threw her forward. Crunch ! 


Crunch! on the ground behind her. That terrible bull was coming! Would 
she ever get her foot on that confounded pedal? Yes, there it was at last, 
and gathering all her strength, she made a desperate plunge forward. "Thank 
Heavens, the wind is at my back, and it is down hill ahead!" she thought, 
and started off at full speed. But the road was sandy, and she heard or thought 
she heard the crunching sound just behind her. ( )n and on she sped with 
loudly beating' heart, and red jacket flying out into the air. just ahead was 
a deep sandy place. "How shall I ever get through it?" she groaned. A 
sound as of a foot-fall behind made her jump and tremble with terror. 
Down into the sandy place flew the wheel — for a minute she seemed to be 
standing still — and then, one final grand effort and she was out upon the smooth 
road again, and rode like the wind. A turn in the road — the red-stone house 
came into sight, and she fell exhausted from the wheel. She looked back up 
the road; there was not a bull, nor even a cow, in sight. 

Twenty minutes later a happy- faced, red-jacketed girl sat down at her 
desk and calmly wrote a minute description of the "Sensations felt at the moment 
of imminent peril." 


With a sidelong glance, 

And a merry dance, 

Maiden eyes look gleefully at me ; 

Eyes so merry black, 

Impish gleam send back, 

Maiden eyes look gleefully at me. 

With a mellow glow, 
With half "yes," half "no," 
Maiden eyes look tenderly at me ; 
Eyes so lustrous brown, 
Eyelids drooping down, 
Maiden eyes look tenderly at me. 

With a steady light, 

Glistening tears bedight, 

Maiden eyes look lovingly at me ; 

Eyes so softly blue, 

Yes, that e'er are true, 

Maiden eyes look lovingly at me.

In the older and larger educational institutions of the country many of 
the customs peculiar to each had their origin long- ago. But does it follow that 
the present students are more privileged in following those traditions than the 
students of years gone by were in making them? 

Colorado College is now forming its traditions. Some of them we be- 
lieve to be unique; such, for instance, as the Hallowe'en Barbecue. Another 
custom which belongs especially to this college is the observance of Insignia Day. 

In some colleges the cap and gown is not worn at all ; in others, students 
of all classes wear it ; in Colorado College it is a special prerogative of the 
Seniors. The first class in this college to adopt it was the class of 95. When, 
one morning in early Fall, the Seniors, clad in cap and gown, and looking more 
dignified than ever before, walked solemnly to their places in the front seat in 
chapel, the students felt that a new and a good custom had been introduced into 
Colorado College. The class of '96 was not to be outdone by '95 ; nay, it must 
even show some of its own originality. The day of donning cap and gown seemed 
worthy of a name. Latin and Creek dictionaries were searched, but after all 
it was old Caesar himself who suggested the happy thought — "insignia"' — the 
very word! On the morning of the eventful day there appeared back of the 
chapel pulpit the motto, "Dies ad induenda insignia." The class marched in 
after the other students were seated, and the exercises passed off as usual. In 
the afternoon the Seniors, in cap and gown, received the Juniors at the home 
of one of the former. 

One new feature after another has been added by succeeding classes, 
all tending to make the observance of the day more formal. Now the student 
body rises and stands while the Seniors pass in and take their seats. The 
Juniors, two years ago, added a pleasing feature to the day's exercises by pre- 
senting each Senior with a little gift. Later Junior classes have followed their 
example and given souvenirs especially pertaining" to college days. To the 
last class of the century belongs the honor of at least two new features. 

President Slocum was asked to speak in chapel about the custom, and 
recognized the day by a short address. When the Seniors entertained the Juniors 
in the evening, class animosity was buried with proper obsequies, and the last 
sad rites were performed over its departed spirit. 

So that now Insignia Day is a regular college tradition, and it only 
remains for some future class to fix a date for it and insert it in the college 

Winona Bailey, '95. 



By Adelaide Zimmerman. 


Time : — A glorious morning in the month of October, in the year — well, 
it is not necessary to know that. 

Place : — The lawn surrounding Coburn Library. To the west. Pike's 
Peak raising its lofty, cloud-framed head, seemed like a sentinel, to be guard- 
ing the thriving college at its base. Here and there over the green sward were 
scattered groups of students who had discovered the magic power of Colorado 
sunshine to dispel the cobwebs from their brains, and to make even the intri- 
cacies of Trigonometry or French Grammar clear as its own bright radiance. 

Characters : — A Sophomore lassie fair, and a Junior man, who composed 
one of these groups. Each was holding an open book, but the conversation of 
the pair dealt neither with philosophy nor with literature, but with the character- 
istiscs of a fellow student. 


"O, come, now," the Junior man was saying, "don't you think you are a 
bit hard on the boy? Tom Ashley is a mighty nice fellow, and I know you 
would like him if you knew him better." 

"Why, I haven't said he wasn't nice," rejoined the girl quickly. "In 
fact, I think he is decidedly so. There isn't a better looking or a more agree- 
able man in college; but 1 like a person to be something more than nice, simply. 
Why doesn't he do something, and make his mark in college?" 

"But Tom is a good student ; 
you must admit that. 1 don't 
believe he was ever known to 
actually fail in a recitation." 

"O, no;" and the girl's grav 
eyes flashed scornfully ; "he 
dosn't fail, but he never dis- 
ting-uishes himself for bril- 
liancy, either. I would like 
him a great deal better if he 
would flunk once in a while. 
It takes some courage to do 
tha f - What I can't endure is 

WKmBSS^^: . to see a man who has it in him 

to be at the top, just settle 
down into the commonplace. Why doesn't Tom Ashley go in for foot-ball, or 


write, or debate, or sing in the glee-club; in short, why doesn't lie do some- 
thing, instead of allowing himself to be a mere nobody, simply for the lack of 
ambition? If I were a man," and the Sophomore maiden rose and drew her 
diminutive figure up to its full height, "there wouldn't be a thing that I wouldn't 
try for, either in scholarship or athletics. If I couldn't succeed in one, I would 
in another. Mercy! There's the bell, and I haven't been over half of this les- 
son. How I have preached, too. Don't you think I ought to have a column 
in the Tiger on 'Side Talks with Boys?' A crack foot-ball man like you, though, 
doesn't need my words of wisdom, so I'm afraid they've all been wasted on the 
desert air. Goodbye," and laughing merrily, Alice Thornton hurried off to 
join a group of girls who were crossing the campus. 

The Junior man looked after her with a thoughtful air. "She is a splendid 
girl and a very pretty one," he thought to himself, "but she expects such a terrible 
lot of a fellow. I don't believe Tom Ashley will ever come up to her ideas, 
and its too bad, too, for Tom would rather have her approval than Prexy's 
himself. I wonder if I can't stir the boy up. He's a good sort of a chap, but, 
as Miss Thornton says, he doesn't make the most of his abilities. I believe 
I'll tell him what she said, only I won't let him know we were talking of him 
especially. 'Talk of angels," there he goes now, and here is my chance to do 
a little missionary work." So with a heart full of good intentions, the best 
half-back in the State set off to overtake a student who was going in the direc- 
tion of Hagerman Hall. 

The young man whom he joined was a well built, medium sized fellow, 
with a bright, pleasant smile and a face of considerable character. His man- 
ner, however, was somewhat languid and decidedly care-free, and he appeared 
like a person who had never been compelled to exert himself, but had always 
had life made easy for him. 

Half an hour later when Tom Ashley went up to his room there was a 
serious look in his eyes which remained there all day. That night he made 
this little entry in his diary: "Had a long talk with Ben Samson this morn- 
ing, and he gave me quite an account of a conversation Miss Thornton and 
lie had been having. The old fellow thought he managed it very nicely, but 
lie hasn't any more tact than a burro, and 1 could see with half an eye that I 
had been the subject of their talk, and Ben, in the goodness of his heart, thought 
he would give me a few hints without appearing to. It seems Miss T. doesn't 
like me, because I'm not more active in college life, and that she has no use 
for a man who doesn't become prominent in some line or other. I've been 
thinking about it since and have come to the conclusion that I have been lazy, 
or indifferent — which I suppose is just as bad. So here's for turning over a 
new leaf, and to-morrow will see me, attired in the picturesque costume of a 
foot-ball man, practicing with the scrub team. And if I don't do something 
to make her change her opinion of me before the year is out, my name is not 

Thomas Mortimer Ashlev, Jr." 



It was a keen, crispy day in November. 

The Scene: — A foot-ball game on Washburn Field. Old Pike's Peak, 
no longer bare and brown, was glistening with its cap of snow ; and in its 
glorious beaut\- seemed to encourage the sturdy boys of Colorado College to be 
worthy of their majestic mascot. 

The grandstand was crowded, jammed, packed with a yelling, screaming, 
flag-waving mass of people. Numerous pretty girls, with black and yellow 
streamers almost as long as themselves, never thought of wind-blown locks or 
tingling fingers, so engrossed were they in following every move of the game 
and in lending their voices to the yells of "Pike's Peak or Bust," "With a vevo," 
"Tigers! Tigers!" and many others. 

On the opposite side of the field was a smaller, but equally enthusiastic 
crowd of rooters for the rival team. It was the closest game of the year, the 
two teams seeming to be almost perfectly matched. By the hardest kind of 
work the Tigers had succeeded in making a touchdown, and at the end of the 
first half the score stood five to o in favor of Colorado College. This advantage, 
however, was offset by the fact that one of the best players had been hurt ; and 
the face of every college sympathizer showed his anxiety for the outcome. 

Tom Ashley was talking with one of the other subs when some one came 
running towards him. "Ashley. I say, Ashley. Hurry up here. The Cap's 
going to put you on the team." For one moment Tom thought his heart would 
stop beating; the next he was running to join the team, with a do or die expres- 
sion on his face which Alice Thornton, who was an eager spectator on the side 
lines, thought she would never forget. 

Every man went into the second half of that game with set teeth and 
the determination to play as he had never played before ; but he soon discovered 
that every man on the opposing team evidently had the same purpose. Tom 
Ashley fought like a veritable tiger, and the cry of "What's the matter with 
Ashley? He's all right," was borne out to him many a time from the grand- 
stand. One little girl, with gray eyes shining with excitement, watched his 
every play, and bitterly repented some remarks she had made a few weeks pre- 
vious. But Tom, himself, was not satisfied. He knew he was much lighter 
than the man he had replaced and realized keenly that he was not capable of 
doing as effective work. Though he was in every play, he was hurt but once, 
and then, as soon as his wrenched ankle had been rubbed a little, he was up 
and in his place again. 

The stubbornly fought contest continued with no gain on either side 
until finally, with but two minutes to play, the rival team had the ball on the 
college ten yard line. Could they make the goal? "Hold 'em, Tigers, hold 
'em," came the hoarse cry from the wearers of the black and gold. With strain- 


ing eyes and bated breath each one was watching the splendid defense of the 
college team. 

Suddenly every man, woman and child on the grandstand rose as one 
person ; and a mighty shout went up from a thousand throats. A college man 
with the ball tucked under his arm, had broken away from the bunch of players. 
Quickly dodging, turning, evading, he escaped the clutches of his opponents 
and out-distanced them all. ( )n, on he Hew, while shrieks and howls of "Got 
it on a fumble." "Good boy. Tommy!" "Go it, Tommy!" followed him as he 
ran. He had reached the opponent's twenty yard line, the fifteen yard line 
and then, with one treacherous turn, his injured ankel threw him to the ground 
and in a moment his pursuers were upon him. Instantly the yells of joy were 
changed to a groan of dismay, and as soon as time was called a sympathetic 
crowd surrounded Ashley. I hit Tom had nothing to say, either to words of 
praise for his wonderful run or expressions of sympathy for its unfortunate 
ending. He was evidently struggling hard for self-control, and turned to his 
old friend, the half-back. "Get me out of this lien," he said in a choking voice. 

As soon as the two chums were by themselves in Tom's room, the poor 
fellow broke down completely. "I don't believe there ever was such an unlucky 
fellow as I am," he wailed. "Here I had the chance to do the deed of my life 
and then spoiled it all because of a weak ankle, like some girl." 

"O, come, old boy, don't take it so hard," comforted Ben. "We won the 
game anyway, and you played a magnificent game. You couldn't help the ankle 


"Of course, I'm awfully glad we got the game," said Tom, "but how 
much did I do towards it? Any other sub could have done as well. I'll 
be ashamed to look her in the face," he went on in the same disconsolate tone, 
"after ruining a good play that way." 

"You must be crazy, boy," said lien. "Don't you know that you are 
the hero of the hour, even if you didn't score for us. Miss Thornton, if that's 
the 'her' you refer to, will be only too glad to claim you as a friend after the 
record you have made to-day." 

"( ), she will lie sorry for me and be nice to me, of course, but 1 don't 
want her pity. I want her to respect me and own up that I do amount to 

"You'll feel better in the morning," said his friend. "You've got the 
blues now and can't see any good in heaven or earth." 

He did feel better in the morning. How could he help it when every one 
in college seemed bent on making him out a hero whether he would or no? But 
when Alice Thornton came up to him with outstretched hand, he turned almost 


brusquely away from her con- 
gratulations ; and Alice, with a 
Hushing face, wondered if he 
had heard and remembered her, 
perhaps, too freely spoken opin- 
ion of him. She did not know 
that Tom was saying to himself, 
"I'll do something yet that 
won't turn out a fizzle, and then 
I'll take all the smiles she will 
give me, but I won't take them 
out of pit)' or sympathy." 

They marie a very pretty 
picture, did this bevy of college 
girls, grouped against the mas- 
sive rocks of one of the most 
picturesque spots in Cheyenne 
Canon. It was a warm day in the following spring, and Alice Thornton and 
her particular set of girl friends had gone to the mountains for an afternoon 
of rest and pleasure. Some were making college flags for the next base-ball 
game; others, stretched out on the warm earth, were drinking in the beauties 
of Nature in her annual awakening. All were joining in the innocent gossip 
in which girls delight, or listening to the occasional reading of some poem by 
their chaperon, a professor's wife. A number of the college boys were coming 
out in the evening, when every one was expecting a jolly time around the camp 

Alice Thornton sat perched upon a rock above the other girls. Now 
and then her eyes seemed to grow darker as she listened to some beautiful 
thought in verse, and occasionally she joined in the conversation ; but after a 
while she grew very quiet, and with elbows on her knees and chin resting in 
her hands, sat looking off into space, apparently oblivious of those around her. 
One of the girls finally noticed this and called out in a teasing voice, "What's 
the matter, Alice? Got the vapors, or did that last love poem make you think 
of someone?" Alice came out of her trance with a start and a blush, and jump- 
ing quickly to the ground exclaimed, "Neither; but I'm getting awfully stupid 
sitting still so long. I believe I need some exercise. Who will take a climb 
with me up to that high point? There were lots of anemones there last year." 

"O, Alice," remonstrated one girl who was lying with her head pillowed 
on a friend's lap, "what a painfully ambitious girl you are ! I think it is per- 
fectly glorious just to lie here and do nothing." "So do I," echoed several 



"O, well, you needn't go," said Alice. "Yon all look so comfortable it 
would be cruel to tear you away, and I can go alone as well as not. But I 
must have some anemones for my wild flower book, and I feel the need of an 
inspiration for my English essay, and perhaps can get it up on the heights." 

"But you will he very careful and come hack soon?" questioned the pro- 
fessor's wife, anxiously. "It will he dark before long, and the boys will be here." 

"O, yes; I'll come right back," said Alice, "and you mustn't worry 
about me, because I'm an expert mountain climber." So, as Alice was known 
to be fond of taking tramps by herself occasionally, they let her go. 

The minutes flew by very quickly, and almost before anyone realized it, 
the sun had set behind the mountains and dusk was settling down over the 

"It is getting cooler," said the chaperon, "and I think you girls had bet- 
ter get up and put on your wraps. We might begin to open up the lunch boxes, 
too, so we can have supper as soon as the boys come and build the fire." 

"Why, Alice hasn't come back vet," exclaimed one girl. "Hadn't we 
better call her? Let's give our own veil, and if she hears us she will be sure 
to answer. Now all together. 'Whoo-ee, whoo-ee, whoo-ee," " resounded the 
call in a girlish treble through the canon. "There ! I thought I heard her, 
didn't you?" said one. Hut no one else had heard a reply, so again they gave 
the cry, "Whoo-ee, Alice, Alice, whoo-ee!" This time several thought they 
heard a faint response from a point opposite. "She is all right and will be back 
in a little while," they said and began preparations for supper. 

In a few minutes a loud yell of "Pike's beak or bust" echoed through 
the canon and the girls stopped their work to welcome a group of laughing col- 
lege boys who were coming up the road. For a time all was confusion — every- 
one talking and laughing at once — lint as soon as the boys learned that the only 
thing detaining the supper was a fire with which to make the coffee, they hurried 
off to collect fuel, and soon the dry wood was crackling and the water bubbling 
merrily over the flames. 

The Professor's wife had been down by the road looking anxiously in 
all directions. She returned now and joined the laughing group around the 
fire. "Girls," she said, "we must do something about Miss Thornton. She 
surely would have been here by this time if she had started when we called, and 
it is getting so dark I am worried about her," 

Instantly the gaiety ceased and the girls turned and looked at each other 
witli anxious eyes. The trouble was soon explained to the young men, and 
when they heard that Alice had left a half hour or more before sundown, they 
became serious too. 

"She is all right, doubtless," said Ben Samson, encouragingly, "but still, 
1 think some of us boys had better look her up." 


"Ben and I will go," said Tom Ashley. "The rest of yon can go on with 
the supper, and we will prohahly he back with her safe and sound in a short time." 

"Hadn't the rest of us fellows better go too?" asked another. 

"O, no; two is enough; but if we don't find her pretty soon we will come 
back after you." 

Tom spoke carelessly, but when he and Ben had left the party his face 
became very grave. "I'm afraid this is serious business, Ben," he said. "There 
are some terribly treacherous places over on that point and she never ought to 
have gone alone." 

"We will hope for the best, anyway," replied Ben. "Perhaps she has 
lost the trail, and if we yell she can trace us by our voices." 

The two young men crossed by the stepping stones over the little moun- 
tain stream which runs through the canon, and began the ascent of the opposite 
side. For some distance there was a clearly marked trail, but this was soon lost 
and the two searchers separated, one going to the right, the other to the left. 
They were careful to keep within hailing distance of each other, and stopped 
frequently to call at the top of their voices. But no answering cry came to them 
over the still air, and the hearts of the waiting party below grew heavier and 
heavier as the continued halloos of the young men told them that the search 
was unrewarded. 

Ben and Tom, after a last hard scramble up a steep incline, reached the 
summit and came together for a consultation. "I'm afraid she is hurt some- 
where, Ben, and can't answer us," said Tom. "That is what I have been think- 
ing," said Ben, "but it is so dark now we couldn't see her anywav. We must 
keep on searching just the same. I wonder if she might not have started for 
some other place." Looking wildly around in his despair, Tom's eve fell upon 
a high rocky point about a quarter of a mile to the north, and with a sudden 
Hash of recollection, he remembered having once pointed it out to Miss Thorn- 
ton, and having told her what a magnificent view could be gained there. 

In a few words he told Ben of this, and the two hurried off, stumbling 
and slipping on the loose gravel in their haste. On the other side of this spot 
was an abrupt drop into one of the minor canons that cross and recross the 
range. Tom's heart sank within him as he thought of this, and it was with 
a feeling of dread and horror that on reaching the place he leaned cautiously 
over the jagged rocks which formed the edge. About half way down the 
flinty sides of this little precipice a narrow ledge of rock projected out some 
two or three feet. Peering over, Tom thought he could just discern in the 
deep shadow a dark object lying upon this ledge, and both hoping and dread- 
ing to find there the one he sought, he called softly, "Miss Thornton! Alice!" 

There was a slight movement, a low sob, and a faint voice broken with 
joy and relief answered, "Yes, yes, I am here. Oh, I am so glad you have 


found me. 1 had almost given up hope. It has seemed so long, so terribly 

"Are you hurt?" asked Ben, who at the first word had knelt down beside 

"Not very much," answered Alice, bravely. "I think 1 have sprained 
my wrist, it pains so; but 1 broke my fall some by clinging to that little hush." 

"Just have patience a little longer," said Tom, "and we'll get you up 
here all safe." 

The two men held a hurried consultation, and it was decided that Tom 
should return to the picnic ground, and with one of the other boys, go to the 
nearest house for lanterns and rope, sending the others, meanwhile, up to the 
summit, lien was to stay with Alice and give her what encouragement he 
could. "You must let me he the one to go," Tom had urged, "for 1 couldn't 
stand it to stay here helpless and see her lying there in so much peril. 1 Ve 
got to he doing something." So, after explaining the plan to Alice, Tom set 
off for his wild rush down the mountain side, little heeding his many falls 
and hruises. Part way down he met the rest of the party who could stand the 
suspense no longer, and were coming up to aid in the search. He quickly 
explained the situation to them, and one of the boys turned back to help him, 
while the others continued the ascent. 

In spite of the boys' haste, to the waiting group on the summit, it seemed 
an eternity until their return. Alice was the bravest of them all, though the 
strain of remaining in one position on the perilous ledge was something terrible. 
Her greatest worry seemed to be that she was causing them all so much anxiety 
and trouble. 

At last, the two boys, panting and almost exhausted by their hurried 
climb, reached the summit and were received with welcoming cheers by the 
others. Tom, without waiting for any discussion as to who should he lowered, 
tied the rope around his waist and told his comrades he was ready. A heavy 
shawl was laid over the edge of the rock to prevent the rope from being worn, 
and each man settled hack and took a firm hold of the rope, the girls adding 
their feebler strength at the end. 

Slowly, carefully, they lowered the rope, and with a sigh of relief heard 
Tom's "All right, fellows," as his feet touched the ledge. It was the work 
of but a few moments to fold a coat around Alice and tie the rope securely 
over it, and then still more slowly, more carefully, the rope, with its precious 
burden, was raised again. One of the hoys stayed at the edge to lift Alice 
over, and then many arms were ready to lay her tenderly on the soft earth. 
Though every heart was full of gratitude, hut little was said, for all knew 
that there was still great danger in trying to raise Tom's far greater weight. 
The rope was quickly dropped again and in a moment Tom called out, "I'm 


ready, boys." Each man took a new and firmer hold, braced himself again, 
and with set teeth, put his powerful muscles to the task. There was one dread- 
ful moment when, with Tom dangling in mid air, the boys seemed unable to raise 
him farther ; but every man brought out all his reserve strength and in a few 
moments Tom was at the top, and Ben, with a "Thank God!" which was echoed 
in every heart, was helping the weary boy over the rocks. 

Alice, now that all danger was over, was crying as if her heart would 
break, but when she saw Tom she put out her uninjured hand, sobbing, "O, how 
can I ever, ever thank you?" 

"I do not want any thanks," said Tom, softly; "only, have I proven at 
last that I can do something?" 

"I knew that you could long ago," replied Alice, smiling through her 


I meet her, some times meet her 

On the path — in the crowded hall, 

I greet her smile and greet her, 

She smiles and is gone — that's all. 

An instant, an instant only, 

I see her — she passes on. 

And leaves me standing lonely — 
Lonely, for she is gone. 

I dream — I am with her in seeming — 
'Tis a phantom of the brain, 

For I'm with her only in dreaming; 
I awake — and she's gone again. 

Will it always be? Must it always be? 

Shall she pass me, and fleet away? 
Oh, cruel fate that in holding me 

Away from her life alway ! 

— From a Note Book. 



I'll not be here 
Another year, 
The Senior sadly sighed. 
Then hied away from noises gav, 
And sat her down and cried. 

The mid-year exams were terrific — 

< )nr profs have grown scientific. 

In cramming they disbelieve soundly, 

But in flunking they believe most profoundly, 

Yes, I'll be here 
Another year, 
The Senior sadly sighed. 
Then hied away from Noyes' say, 
And sat her down and cried. 

Eva May, bo. 

O youth, on scholarly attainment bent, 

Whom learning, lamp in hand, doth call 
To leave the world — its gaiety, its business, all — 

Upon thy one great purpose deep intent : 
'Tis easy, when without the wind's chill sweep 

Drives snow and hail's sharp click against thy pane, 
To slippered sit, while blazing embers wane, 

And pour and ponder long o'er classics deep. 
But keep firm grip upon thy purpose then. 

When spring, in all her wiles and lures arrayed. 
Assails thy heart in guise of some sweet maid, 

And draws from laxing hand the book and pen. 
For learning, tho' she have not beauty's charms, 

Has beauty's jealousy; and be most sure 
Will not thy wooing's sham for long endure, 

Her chill embraces left for softer arms. 

H. McL., bi. 


Oft as I tread the dusty campus o'er, 

Mine eyes do love to journey toward the west. 

On nestling foot-hills first they find sweet rest 


Before to steep and jagged peaks they soar. 

In thought I hear the sparkling waters pour, 

I seem to feel cool vales in verdure drest, 

As upward wanders still my gaze in quest 

Of that fair summit, clear and pure and hoar. 

E'en so, at times, my soul doth take to flight. 

In earthly scenes it cannot ever hide; 

On gentle hills of peace it will abide 

And listen to the voice of faith and light. 

Then on to realms my soul doth gladly glide, 

Crowned with ( rod's love, thrice pure and spotless white. 

Eva May, 'oo. 


The following recipe for an essay may be of use to members of Prof. 
Parsons' English classes ; if followed accurately, much spasmodic brain fever 
on the part of the students, and many headaches on the part of Prof. Parsons, 
would be avoided : 

Ingredients: — 2 ideas (one will answer). 
1 thought. 

1 cup of ink. 

2 reams of paper. 

1 teaspoonful of punctuation. 
Yi cup of Bartlett's quotations. 

To one idea add another ( if the second is to be had, if riot, dilute the 
first). Stir vigorously; set near Century Dictionary to rise. Prepare a regu- 
lar mess of pads, pens, pencils, erasers and ink. By this time the ideas, or 
idea, will have evaporated. Secure others and treat as before. Then put in 
the punctuation — a point at a time — until the mixture begins to look clear. Take 
a reliable thought from the last Outlook, or Review of Rci'icivs. Beat the 
idea and the expression separately, and add. If the essay begins to curdle 
(your blood) put in a dash of wit. To remove all "fine writing," strain through 
Scott and Denney's "Rhetoric and Composition." 

Then spread out thin on paper, taking care not to break the continuity- 
Place in a pigeondiole until you happen to think of it again. Beat once more 
thoroughly. Season to taste with Bartlett's Quotations and set aside to cool. 
When quite cold, cut up into paragraphs to test the progression of the thought. 
Endeavor also, to discover the original idea. If successful, serve with a simple 
dressing. No garnishing will be required. This makes a wholesome dish. 
Eollow directions carefully and you will have an essay worthy of an Emerson. 


'Twas before the game at Boulder, 

Very softly had he told her, 
"Oh, thy presence there means 

Everything to me." 

She, with dark eyes speaking sorrow, 

For her absence on the morrow, 
Slyly said, "My heart doth always 

Beat for thee." 

Eva May. 


The bonfire, which had been the chief feature of the evening's rejoicing, 
had died down so that only a few red embers remained; the crowds of laugh- 
ing, singing students had gone home ; one by one the lights in the college build- 
ings had gone out, the one by the engine-house shining longest of all. The 
happiest day the college had known for a long time was over and the old cam- 
pus seemed quiet at last. 

But a little breath of wind from the west rustled the folds of the flag 
which had hung motionless all evening; and, as if roused by this, just as the 
town clock struck twelve, a voice from the flag broke the stillness. 

"Are you awake. Palmer?" 

"Awake? Do you think 1 can sleep to-night?" the patriarch of the 
campus answered with indignation. "Leave that to Perkins, over there. He's 
young, and this day doesn't mean as much to him as to the rest of us. If he 
had waited for the foot-ball championship as long as I have, he would realize 
what that bonfire meant." 

Aroused by his name, Perkins stirred and asked: "Palmer, did we never 
win a championship before?" 

"A championship?" Well I should say! Ask anyone in the State about 
base-ball or track athletics. But we never were champions in foot-ball before." 

"O, do tell me something about foot-ball. 1 don't know anything about 
it, and it must be lovely to understand it," begged a voice from another direction. 

The moon showed the last speaker to be an exclusive looking building- 
set back from the others, as though there were danger of its being too conspicu- 
ous. Palmer turned and laughed a little as he said: 

"T don't believe girls can ever appreciate foot-ball. Haven't we tried 
and tried to make you understand it? And I've talked over every single game 
with you, too. Don't you remember that I told you how we used to try to keep 


Boulder's score as low as possible? And you surely remember when we beat 
ber first in 98?" 

"O," said tbe Library, "that was when Boulder made arrangements to 
keep tbe ball after tbe game — for ber trophy-room — wasn't it?" 

The breeze from the west bad grown stronger, and the old flag was 
humming : 

"They have learned better at Boulder." 

Hagerman, off to the south, gave a deep sigh. 

"Wasn't that a night, though? I tell you, Palmer, you can talk all you 
want to of what you know about foot-ball, and athletics in general ; but if you 
lived here you would realize what it means to be in touch with the college life. 
When we win, tbe boys shoot off pistols from my windows so that I've been 
afraid we'd all be arrested and taken down to the jail ; and when we lose, they 
stay up all night talking it over. Why, do you remember, a year ago, when 
Golden, or the umpire, or somebody, beat us, some of the Tigers actually cried ! 
Jingo, what hard luck that was!" 

"They didn't do much crying to-day," chuckled Coburn. 

"Indeed they didn't, if I know what you are talking about ; its all I can 
do to hear what you say way down here," came faintly from the Observatory. 
"I watched them closely through my telescope all afternoon. I'll bet you I saw 
the game better than Professor Cajori himself." 

Perkins, although he had not been on the campus long, bad caught some 
of the college spirit, and being musical, expressed bis enthusiasm in song : 

"And now they know better in Golden, 
And now they know better in Golden, 
And now they know better in Golden 
Than to twist the Tiger's tail." 

"O, this is so interesting," sighed Miss Ticknor, who had been a most 
attentive listener, at least ever since Hagerman began to speak. "Tell me more 
about it, please." 

"If my bell could talk, it would tell of all our victories, and that would 
be a storv," said Palmer. "But those boys of yours, Hagerman, have mar 1 ? it 
so hoarse it can hardly utter a sound to-night." 

"How glad the neighbors must be," interposed Coburn. 

"That isn't tbe only hoarse voice on the campus to-night," said Hager- 
man. "The only reason those boys went to sleep at all to-night was that they 
didn't have voice enough left to whisper." 

During this speech Miss Ticknor had been trying to look at Hagerman ; 
but Palmer, who played tbe part of chaperon, stood in the way, and she gave up 
the attempt. She had learned that it was useless to combat against the chaperon. 

Miss Montgomery, being too youthful to stay awake long, had been quietly 
sleeping all this time. But as proof that she was not unaffected by the day's 


happenings, she stirred in her sleep, and Miss Ticknor, who stood nearest her, 
declared that she said "Seventeen to n-n-nothing ! What bliss!" 

"Do you suppose we'll be champions next year, too?" asked Miss Ticknor. 

"Next year," was Palmer's determined reply, "we're going to win that 
cup again, and next year we're going to keep it." 

"Just think of the receptions we'll have," exclaimed Miss Ticknor. 

Palmer said nothing, lie was looking at Hagerman, in the windows of 
which glowed a faint light. 

"What's the matter?" 

"O, the boys are getting up to go on their paper routes, and its time for 
us to go to sleep." 

"How horrid!" said Miss Ticknor, "I hate to be made to go to bed." 

There was silence until a boy came down the steps of Hagerman and rode 
off on his bicycle, and another with his hands in his pockets started past the 
flag-pole across the campus. 

"It's surely bed-time," grumbled Coburn. 

"Fellows — and ladies, I beg your pardon — " said the flag, "everyone else 
on the campus has cheered to-day, and we surely aren't the least loyal and 
enthusiastic friends of the Tigers. Can't we do something to show them we're 

You probably thought that the noise that wakened you was a harder gust 
of the cold morning wind. But had yon listened closely you would have known 
that it was made by the oldest inhabitants of the campus, who were shouting 
the familiar words : 

"Pike's Peak or bust! 
Pike's Peak or bust !

Yell we must !"

Ye Sophs,

Ye sunne 
retireth for 
ye night. 

Ye state of 
ye weather. 

Ye rest of ye 
being omitted, 
ye tale goeth 

Ye Freshyes 
hold high 
revilrie inne 
Castle Kinni- 


Ye subtle 

Ye gentles and ye laclyes fayr, attend untoe my tale; 
Inne verie sooth 'tis one that well may make ye boldest pale. 
( >f doughtie deeds I sing toe yon, of battle, blood and fight, 
Of valiant aets, more valiant words, and prodigies of flight. 


Long years before ye arts of manne hadde nature's strength subdued 

Between ye Soph and Freshye clans there lay a deadlie fewde. 

What was ye origin thereof I will notte stop to state, 

Because of more important things that I must now relate. 

Ye Freshyes be a simple tribe, and peaceful inne ye main, 

But when aroused, 'tis difficult toe calm them down again. 

Ye Sophs, upon ye other hand, a guilefulle race they be, 

Well versed in alle ye artes of warre, and skilled in deviltrie. 

Yet, while ye Sophs in thys respect superior may feel, 

Ye Freshyes oft surpass them both inne numbers and inne zeal. 

And hence inne an affray ofttimes affairs such form doe take, 

That from ye horn's small ende it is ye Sophs their exit make. 

Now, that ye may more knowledge gain of each contending tribe, 

Ye battle of ye Kinnikinnick I here would fain describe. 


Ye golden sunne hadde gone toe bedde, because, you see, 'twas night. 

Ye modest clouds, alle pink and red, were blushing at ye sight. 

While, with a dull and ponderous crash ye shades of evening fell, 

And loud and clear to every ear rang out ye curfew bell. 

(Ye curfew whistle blew is what I really should have said. 

But such a vulgar line as that would never doe instead.) 

Ye wind it blew from north-north-east, ye sky was clear and black. 

For balance of ye weather's state, consult ye almanack. 

From Castle Kinnikinnick that eve shot forth broad bands of light 

That far and wide onne every side explored ye realms of night. 

Ye Freshyes held a party there, with joy and jollitie, 

And from withinne there came ye dinne of mirth and revelrie. 

No sense of coming danger did their minds with terror fill, 

For joke and jest were atte their best, and no one dreamed of ill. 

Ah! could they with a master have rent ye veil of night, 

Their feeling of security would soon have taken flight, 

Though barred ve windows, locked ye doors. For clanger lurked, 

alack ! 
Hereditary enemies were hard upon their track. 


For while ye Freshyes revelled and ye wearied burghers slept, 
Ye sly and craftie Sophomores with noiseless footsteppes crept 
Along ye darke and silent streets, and through ye mire and mudde ; 



and discover 
ye postern 

What ho! 

Ye postern 
door is 

Ye wind it howled amid ye trees, ye Sophs they howled for Mood. 

They swore to steal ye viands that ye Freshmenne hadde supplied, 

And prowled about with eager eyes toe find a way inside ; 

But alle inne vain till they minuter scrutiny applied, 

And inne ye rearward wall atte last a postern gate espied. 

Now rouse ye, Freshyes, for there hangs, impersonate inne these, 

Uponne a thread, above your head, ye sword of Damocles. 

But, ah ! ye Freshyes they were lulled inne false security, 

And calmlie played "Progressive Catte," whatever that may be, 

When, "crash!" a shock that shook ye walls announced toe them ye 

With an impromptu battering-ram ye Sophs ye door had burst, 
And ere a single Freshmanne boy ye shattered door coulde reach, 
At least a score of Sophs, or more, came pouring through ye breach. 

Ye dogges of

Rush forth ye insult toe avenge, just so was it with these. 

With one accord ye Freshyes rose, impeding coats cast by. 

And charged uponne ye Sophomores toe smite them hip and thigh. 

Ye Sophomores hadde little while wherein toe pick and choose 

What they shoulde take and what shoulde leave. There was no time 

to lose. 
Now of ye viands they desired they coulde not see ye least, 
But there withinne a basket lay ye dishes for ye feast. 
And fearing lest these dishes might be brokenne inne ye fray. 
Most thoughtfullie they took them uppe and bore them alle away. 
But now on their devoted heads ye maddened Freshyes fell. 
Ye scene of strife that followed next ! 'Tis more than tongue can tell. 
An aged and decrepit stove that inne ye corner stood, 
And alle ye former ills of life hadde borne with hardihood, 
Was mauled about so grievouslie by ye contending hoste, 
That down inne shattered bits it sank, and so gave up ye ghost. 
And now a strong and grievous scent arose upon ye air. 
Ye Sophomores in order toe give zest toe ye affair 
Hadde with them brought, and alle about with lavish hands did strew 
Rich, fragrant pepper of cayenne, and also CS 2 . 
With one accord they alle did sneeze eftsoons their eyes did fill, 
But none ye less because of thys their hands were active still. 
For each and every one of them did earnestlie believe 
Ye ancient precept that toe give is better than receive. 
And inne ye practice alle did strive superior toe be. 
For each right cheerfullie did give, but took reluctantlie. 
In this fraternal interchange of courtesies, ye bovs 
Of both ye clans did zealouslie participate. Ye noise 
Terrifick was, to say ye least. Ye verie earth did quake, 
And e'en ye starrie firmament did toe its center shake. 
And atte ye sounde, for blocks arounde, ye startled burghers woke, 
And raising each his window high, untoe his neighbor spoke : 


Ye prof, 

and waxeth 

and in" 
ceedeth to 
raise cane. 

T. J. Jeffries 
please take 

Ye Sophs 
hit ye 

Ye prof. 


Where is ye muider taking place? What dreadfulle sounds are these 
That inne ye watches of ye night are borne uponne ye breeze?" 


Ye deities of battle, to whom we humblie yield, 

Gods of ye gorie cane-rushe and ye stricken foot-ball field. 

Say, are ye glutted now with strife and sated with ye fray, 

< >r must ye bitter conflict be perpetuate for ay? 

Not so! For on a suddenne, like a godde from ye machine 

A bluff and burlie prof, appears uponne ye tragick scene, 

Who inne his sinewy hand (loth hold a strong and sturdie stick, 

As long as is his brawnie arm, and e'en amost as thick, 

And who, aghast and angered too atte what his eyes perceive, 

Shouts franticallie and vainlie for ye Sophomores to leave. 

"Hence, villains, hence! Vile caitiffs, git! Vamoose ye ranch," he 

And with ye stick proceeds atte once his words toe emphasize. 
With might and main he used his cane uponne ye crowded presse, 
And manie a back was blue and blacke because of that caress. 
But as with wantonne arms these favors here and there he spent, 
There was a crash, and inne a flash ye cane in splinters went. 
But nothing daunted soone ye prof, another stick produced, 
And once again uponne ye Sophs his mighty arm was loosed, 
And thumped away without delay, and spared nor back nor head, 
Till from those blows that felle like hail ye Sophs in terror fledde. 
Aye, through ye shattered door they fledde, as leaves before ye wind, 
But like avenging destiny ye prof, he came behind. 
And after him ye eager Freshyes pressed to ye attack, 
Hut their impulsive course he stayed with "Back, ye Freshyes, back !" 
Then toe ye fleeing Sophs he spake inne tones toe chille ones blood : 
"Ye Sophomores shalle rue this day, or els my name be mudde!" 
Ye shuddering trees, ye awe-struck plains, ye mountains and ye 

All echoed backe ye awfulle words, "or els my name be mudde!" 

Ye door be closed, again withinne began ye merrie rout, 
But grimme and fell, as sentinel, ye prof, he stoode without. 
redre°'' 1S Ye Sophs, although disconsolate and sore, still lingered nigh, 

But they ye prof.'s stern glances shunned, they coulde notte meet 

his eye, 
And as ye night wore onne apace, ye moon its radiance shedde, 
By ones and twos they slipped away, and hied them off toe bedde. 


What is ye moral of thys tale is more than I can tell, 
in winch it jf y e wou l c i e know, consult ye Dean. But thvs I wot full well : 

is shown that J - . - . 

ye prof, never Ye Freshyes kept ye ice-cream, and therein much joy did take, 

And ye Sophs they took ye dishes, but ye prof., he took ye cake. 

Soc Et Tuum. 



The Sophs get anything but dishes at the Kinnikinnick ? 

Floyd go to the foot-ball banquet in a carriage? 

Minerva hold her function at the Alta Vista? 

Miss May go on the excursion to Boulder? 

Chapman get his fudges? 

The Freshmen give the Juniors a Valentine Party? 

Cross go to the Apollonian Farce? 

The Barbecue come off on Hallowe'en night? 

The Junior English Class escape through the back door? 

Everybody believe the owl-story? 

That lady hold up her skirts more daintily at the Minerva Farce? 


Lillian Johnson want her "quarter back?" 

Dickinson get a new hat ? 

Moore go without his supper after the tournament? 

Collins leave his cards at the wrong house? 

The Library look so bare after the Ethical Talk? 

Prof. Brehaut fail to make connections with his Soph Greek Class? 

Miss Gashwiler jump up on the window-sill? 

Fritz go home after his necktie one Saturday eve? 

Some of the Hall fellows have an appointment with Prof. Parsons after 

the Glee Club Concert ? 
Browning borrow some car-fares on the night of the Preliminary Debate? 
Miss Bradshaw hail an express wagon? 


Some asked me where they put the seed : 

"The best place in the land ; 
In Frcshie's breast there is no weed, 

'Tis soft soil, with no sand." 
Some asked me whence the winds do rise ; 

To Sophs I bade them go. 
"Just stand and look with bulging eyes 

And hear them spout and blow." 
Some asked me where the rivers run 

And whence does come the rain : 
"The Juniors have," I said, "a ton 

Of water on the brain." 
One asked me whence does come the light 

That shown at night and noon : 
"The Seniors grand are far more bright 

Than sun and stars and moon." 
Thus with the sun, wind, water, rain, 

And dig and prod about, 
The student raises in his brain 

An intellectual sprout. Willbe. 




This poem was written in gas meter — blankety-blank verse. The author 
took out a poet's license, but it ran out on the third line, and he has been using 
a different lie since. Critics are not agreed as to whether this poem is epic, lyric 
or dyspeptic; it is didactic in style and dyed blue in color, each verse being 6 
feet 4 inches in its sox. 

First Thales who thought that everything's water. 

Anaxmander taught that the base of all matter 
Was a principle, "archa," he called its name. 

But he thought 'twas material stuff just the same. 
Next came Pythagoras, a very nice man. 

With the idea that numbers expressed the world's plan. 
Of the Eleatics the chief men were these: 

Zeno, Zenophanes, Parmenides. 
They said that Achilles can't win the race 

Because of the infinite division of space. 
Heraclites, Kmpedocles now came along, 

( )n iiux the first was especially strong. 
Empedocles thought from the day of his birth, 

That the world was all air, fire, water and earth ; 
The Atomists next, if you must make a bluff, 

Their name shows us their belief quite well enough. 
Leucippus, ot whom very little we find. 

And Democritus, really a very great mind. 
And now Anaxagoras, who taught of the "neus," 

A brand new conception, as sure as the deuce. 
The Sophists, whose influence was awfully bad ; 

And these are all of the men we have had. 
P. S. 
1 forgot Anaximenes, which hardly seems fair. 

He believed that all substance was made out of air!! 
Old Socrates was an ugly man, 

With a big flat nose and bulging eyes ; 
His face warn't built on a very good plan. 

And yet he was awfully wise. 
He walked around on his big hare feet. 

And talked to slaves and working men, 
To show that whenever the truth we meet. 

We know and comprehend it then. 
He said if a man only knew what was right. 

He'd go right away and do it: 
(And if you can't read Greek at sight. 

There's a translation made by Jewett.) 
Poor old Sox was too good for his time. 

And the judges condemned him to die. 
So he drank his poison with calmness sublime, 

And his soul went straight up to the sky. A. B

Angels and ministers of grace defend us ! 

Be thou a harbinger of health or of dyspepsia, 

Bring with thee ghosts from yester's meals, or days before ; 

Be thy contents unknown or unfathomable 

Thou comest in such a questionable shape 

That I will speak to thee. I'll call thee mutton, 

Spuds, onions, sausage, beef. Oh, answer me ! 

Let me not burst in ignorance ! But tell 

Why these pulverized bones, these scraps 

Return to haunt us. Why the crafty cook 

To whom we sent thee well picked, yester night. 

Should send thee forth in this dread guise. What means this, 

That thou, rehashed, unsought, in strange new form. 

Revist'st thus thy victims, sallow faced, 

Making dreams hideous ; and we fools unnatural 

Partake of thee, risking thus our lives, 

To thine unsavory, hidden mystery. 

Say — why is this? Wherefore? — But we must eat. 

Then * * * 

With a dash, 

And a crash, 

We all fall to 

On Hagerman hash !

"©wed to the /moon." 

(In return for her last quarter, which the author borrowed. ) 
"Why floats yon moon across the starless sky, 

Through clouds of vapor sailing-, yet remaineth dry?' 
Dry? Thou'rt wrong, the moon was dry 

And so got full, and that is why 
She floats so aimless 'mid the clouds, 

That fleck the vault on high. 
How dos't thou know the moon is full, sweet youth? 
She seems to walk straight o'er yon rocky ledge. 
"Ah, cans't thou not by this perceive the truth? 
The moon is full, because forsooth, 
She hath a jagged edge." 

A. B. 


I could write of the numerous joys of existence, 

The lives of the great, such as Peter and Paul, 
But this Pve refused, with becoming persistence, 

For what is so charming as Hagerman Hall ? 
When lights are all out, and a feeling magnetic 

Arouses a rough house and causes a fall, 
A picture of anger, sublimely pathetic, 

Is "Committee on Floors" at Hagerman Hall. 

Lo Benny comes forth, wrapped up in a shawl, 
A cot bed, made ready, appeases his anger, 

And he sprawls at full length in Hagerman Hall. 

B. F. M. 

He took her dainty little hand, 

She let it passive lie, 
But raised the other with a swing 

And biffed him in the eye. 

That man can choose his way 

Here in this world below, 
Is an easy thing to say, 

But hard to prove it so. 


'Tis now Prof. Aiders roams the fields 
With gun and barking towsers, 

And finds that when the night comes on 
He's only bagged — his trowsers ! 


I saw him when he led his class, 
His joy was brimming o'er; 

I heard him cheer a winning team, 
Till he could cheer no more. 

I saw him see his sweetheart home, 
In richest moonlight — but 

I never saw supremest joy 
Until he got a cut.
